Annual “HudsonAlpha Tech Challenge” going virtual for 2021

The 4th annual “HudsonAlpha Tech Challenge” (HATCH) will be virtual this year.

The unique life sciences hackathon, scheduled for April 16-25, brings together college and high school students and professionals from across the State of Alabama. It is an initiative of the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology and the Urban Engine, both located in Huntsville.

“More than 850,000 STEM-related jobs will be needed in Alabama by 2026, and HATCH is a great way to give students and others currently in the workforce a deeper dive into the exciting and challenging areas of genetics, genomics, computer science, informatics and much more,” said Carter Wells, Vice President for Economic Development at HudsonAlpha.
