Hack3 is a wrap!

Hello everyone!

Thank you so much for coming to Hack3!

You were part of the 275+ participants from 20+ countries spread across 14 time zones who attended! We hosted ten workshops, provided opportunities for you to receive help from 25 mentors, and hosted three judging groups consisting of ten highly-esteemed judges. Our workshop teachers, mentors, and judges included those from Stanford University, Harvard University, Amazon Web Services, Wikipedia, NetApp, and FIRST, among others, and we hope you had a great time working with them.

We hope you learned something new, met interesting people, and had a blast. We hope to see you again soon at a future Hack3 event! If you have time, please take a moment to complete our participant survey to help us improve future events!


Also, please congratulate our tentative eleven winning teams! If you’d like more inspiration for next projects or continuations, take a look at their projects and all the other amazing projects created at Hack3.


We faced a large number of accusations against teams regarding dishonesty and rule violations this year, and combined with some initial technical difficulties, you may realize the list has been updated. We will continue taking tips via our email at for the next seven days. We are committed to never rewarding those who misrepresent their projects while supporting those who participated and abided by our guidelines. We review every accusation seriously, and this involves a thorough review of the project’s codebase. After seven days, we will finalize our winning teams and confirm prize distribution details via emails provided during registration. Please note that the Hack3 team maintains full discretion over our decisions.


P.S. Many exclusive promotions for Hack3 attendees are still available here! Another opportunity that may interest some of you — The Knowledge Society is offering a $500 scholarship to all applications for TKS Boston, an innovation training program for future CEOs and leaders who want to learn how to solve the world's biggest problems. If you have any questions feel free to direct them to the associate director at TKS Boston (Amna), at, or check out the one-pager here.
