Plan, design, and test your biomedical innovations in the pathway of your choice!

HackARG is a biomedical technology innovation competition. Participants will spend the allotted time planning, designing, and testing their biomedical innovations in the pathway of their choice. Teams of 1 - 4 students ranging from grades 9 - 12 will be permitted to participate. The challenge will begin on 10/2 at 6:30 PM EST, and guiding themes will be unveiled for each pathway on the date of the opening ceremony. The deadline for all projects in both pathways is 11:59 PM EST on 10/4. Participants in either pathway will be required to complete scientific research in order to develop novel solutions to problems within the biomedical field. Participants who develop successful biomedical imaging models will have the opportunity to partner with Arterys and have their models published online.
