About Us
Rose Hack is UC Riverside's 24-hour hackathon, one of the few women-centric hackathons in California! Founded by the female leaders of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM-W) and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE).
Rose Hack's mission is to encourage individuals from underrepresented groups in STEM to gain experience, create strong networks, and build amazing projects through their shared passions in Science and Technology.
Rose Hack welcomes both undergraduate and high school students for a lively weekend filled with innovation, discovery, networking, mentorship, and so much more!

Rose Hack is a completely free event! You will be allowed to attend workshops, listen to some wonderful speakers, and best of all, win great prizes with no entrance fee. 😀
Rose Hack takes place over the course of 2 days from January 20 at 9 AM to January 21st. There are 24 hours for hacking, and the rest of the time will be for judges to go over projects and attendees to check out workshops and speakers.
It will take place in your favorite engineering buildings! It will be held throughout Winston Chung Hall and certain BCOE buildings and classrooms. There will be a comprehensive list of activities and their locations in the final itinerary!
All the more reason to come and experience a hackathon! You can learn from the various workshops, speakers, and mentors, and they can help guide a personal project of your choice if you want!
Just yourself, device of choice (i.e your PC or laptop), student ID, and don’t forget a charger.
No, your project must be brand new and started only once the event has started at 9 AM. It’s your time to start a project fresh and unique to Rose Hack, so get creative and have fun with it!
No, you can work independently if you wish. If you do want to join a team, there is a limit of 4 people per team!
The theme for this year’s Rose Hack is Cyberpunk! The tracks that will be featured for you to make projects for are Sustainability, Women-Centric, Futuristic/Techno, Beginner-Friendly, and Startup!
