Each team can have up to 4 hackers, as long as they are registered with CART Codes. You are also able to work individually, however our hope is that the hack generates collaboration between disciplines to enact change!

How do I Sign Up with my Teammates or Join a team?

No. To ensure fairness, and integrity, all work must be completed during the event. A call for proposals will be open during the registration period, allowing teams an opportunity to develop project ideas in advance. These submissions can be sent to
