Our events

our 2019 booth at club showcase


We love our work because of our amazing members! We host social events so that all of our members can get to know each other and take a break from their school work. We've hosted game nights, events with other clubs, gone on hikes, and taken many trips to Slodoco. We also have a banquet every year to celebrate everyone's hard work.

the first general meeting of the 2018-2019 school year


We start each year off with bootcamp, which is your chance to learn what Hack4Impact Cal Poly is all about! During bootcamp, our members attend workshops and get familiar with the tools they will use on their project team. Throughout the year we also host tech talks and speaker events with professors and other professionals.

Giving back

We try to learn about our nonprofit partners' missions and work beyond our technical projects as well! We volunteer with every nonprofit we partner with for the year so that each member learns about their work, regardless of their project team. One example of a volunteer event we had was going to plant trees with the Environmental Center of SLO.
