Hackathons are events where teams of students spend a period of time utilizing resources and support that we provide to bring their ideas to life. These projects range from mobile applications to drones to embedded hardware and more!
We will have a mixer at the start of the event to help you find a team! Additionally, we have a Facebook event for attendees to share their ideas and find a team before the event.
This year's event is from 9am to 9pm on March 10th.
Checked out hardware such as Raspberry Pis, Oculus Rifts, etc. are the only things you cannot keep.
We'll be providing lots of hardware, including Arduinos, Oculus Rifts, Raspberry Pis, and more! You can find a full list of available hardware at hardware.hack.gt
During the expo, projects will be judged on a variety of factors such as technical prowess, usability, and creativity.
Anyone 18 years or older can attend! With the resources provided and beginner-friendly workshops, students from any background can come and enjoy!
The max team size is 4 people.
