AtlasHacks is back for 2021! AtlasHacks II is a 3-day virtual hackathon that aims to foster the creativity within hackers all around the world. We're returning this summer and can't wait to see what the world creates! AtlasHacks II is free and inclusive to all hackers, of all backgrounds and experiences!

Choose Your Own Path:

Hackers can choose a theme to follow and inspire their project. These themes do not have to be extremely strictly followed.


  • Create a project that makes everyday life more convenient
  • Find unique and creative ways to make working from home and remote learning an easier and more productive process


  • Make a health-related hack that combats a specific medical issue
  • We encourage all participants to focus on all areas of health--projects are not limited to just COVID-19!


  • Hackers are encouraged to be as creative as possible for this theme--projects do not have to stick to the typical hackathon ideas
  • For example, projects can involve, but are not limited to, new and exciting technologies, unique digital simulations, complex AI algorithms, or creative games!
