Create an innovative product to help nations and communities achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals!

SET Hacks is a new virtual platform to challenge your skills brought to you by the Students in Engineering and Technology Foundation (SET).

In today’s society, young age creates an inherent stigma that despite whatever initiative one may have taken, they are inexperienced, unknowledgeable, and incapable. At SET, we think inexperience should be seen as a new opportunity, not an excuse. 

With the cancellation of multiple STEM opportunities in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a demand among students for opportunities to innovate and create meaningful products. In lieu of this demand, we have created SET Hacks.

Whether you are experienced in software, hardware, or are just starting out, SET Hacks will give you a great platform for you to expand your knowledge and meet amazing individuals.

Join us on July 18th and 19th and explore the beautiful world of STEM!
