North Carolina Hackathon hosted by students at Duke, UNC, and NCSU

Duke Undergraduate Quantum Information Society (DuQIS), UNC Society of Physics Student (UNC SPS), and NCSU Quantum Information Club co-hosted the IBM Qiskit Community Summer Jam Hackathon (North Carolina). We had 120 participants registered in the North Carolina region, and 16 teams submitted an entry for the final judging phase. Participants ranged from high school students to graduate students, many of whom had little experience with quantum computing prior to the hackathon.
