OwlHacks is Temple University’s annual, student-organized hackathon. First hosted in 2019, OwlHacks received great projects, turnout, and support from our sponsors and university; OwlHacks 2023 is going beyond.

With workshops, panels, games, swag and more, OwlHacks is a fun and educational experience for all levels of technical proficiency. From freshman to seniors, and undergrads to grads, all are welcome at OwlHacks.

Our Sponsors





Tracks are community-centered goals designed to address specific challenges within our community. You will have the opportunity to select a track that aligns with your project's focus and contributes to solving pressing community issues. We will be releasing the tracks when participants can start making their projects (Day 1 at 10am)!

Our Team



Hackathons are events where people of all skill levels come together to build technical projects, learn new skills and overall have a good time!

Yes, hackathons are a great way to learn and grow! If you are stuck on a problem, you will be able to get help from some of our mentors.

OwlHacks will be in person this year! You will still be able to meet other hackers, speak to our sponsors, attend workshops, and win prizes!

No, you can work on a project by yourself or come to our team formation event and find some teammates there.

You will need connection to the Internet, a charged device, your prepared resume in .pdf format, and whatever else needed for your project.

OwlHacks is beginner-friendly! We have workshops for you to learn new technologies.

You are not required to work on a project, but to be eligible for a prize, you must submit and demo your project.

You can network and talk to employers, hang out with friends, work on a project, attend workshops, and participate in competitions!

It is right here! We are still in the process of planning, so it may change.

You must submit a project or attend a significant number of workshops to get swag. We will have OwlHacks T-shirts and stickers, gift card raffles, and swag from sponsors.
