What is Polyhack?
Polyhack empowers students to solve problems at any scale using the knowledge and skills they’ve acquired through the university and beyond. All members of the Tufts community are invited to participate, whether individually or in groups. We want to bring together students from many disciplines under the umbrella of tech in a collaborative environment. This is not necessarily meant to be a place to network or start a company; our goal for Polyhack is to provide an opportunity to apply classroom knowledge to creative projects. Every participant is expected to be the best they can be, and to help others be their best.
