Come for a lively weekend of innovation, face masks, discovering and creating new technology, networking, mentorship, and much more.

The Numbers









A hackathon is a technology-focused event where individuals and teams work on new projects in a short period of time. You can build anything you want. An app, a robot, a website. The only limit is your imagination!

Rose Hack is a 24-hour hackathon open to high school and undergraduates with priority towards women and other underrepresented groups in tech.

Rose Hack is completely free! You'll get a weekend's worth of swag, snacks, meals, drinks and a place to sleep.

Rose Hack is hosted in sunny California at the University of California, Riverside.

Participants will be provided with parking permits to park at UC Riverside for free. Unfortunately, we won't be able to provide travel reimbursements this year. However, we may set up a carpool system for some participants. Feel free to email us for further updates!

If you are a high school or undergraduate student in any major, we'd love to see you here!

Teams can have up to 4 people.

All projects for Rose Hack must be made during the weekend. Planning and gathering resources before the hackathon is allowed. We will be enforcing this to ensure a fair hackathon.

There will be workshops throughout the event! Want to learn iOS, web development, data science, or anything else? Send us a message and we'll try our best to host a workshop for that topic.

Make sure to bring your laptop, chargers, toiletries, student ID, and anything else you need for 24 hours of hacking. No need to bring snacks or food, we'll have tons of that for you!

Yes! As a MLH sanctioned hackathon, we adhere and enforce the MLH Code of Conduct to ensure all participants have a good experience.
