Frequently Asked Questions

What is TOHacks?

TOHacks (pronounced Tee-Oh-Hacks) is a student-run organization that arranges events with the purpose of educating students about revolutionary, ground-breaking technologies such as Financial Tech, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Blockchain. Our aim is to foster an environment that stimulates growth with an understanding of S.T.E.A.M and challenges students to find creative solutions to problems present in our current society. As you may have guessed, our biggest event is our hackathon but we also hold events throughout the year!

How does a virtual hackathon work?

The communication, judging, interactions will all occur on a digital platform. There will be a designated workspace created for the hackathon where participants will have the opportunity to connect with their team members and also communicate with mentors, sponsors and executive members.
