BuildGT is back for its second iteration, and it will be better than ever! More hardware, more workshops, and more time to create!
Feel unprepared? Don't worry! We'll have plenty of mentors on hand to help with projects and tooling. Also, check out BuildGT Week - a week-long celebration of hardware hacking that will feature hands-on workshops from HackGT and our partners.
On the day of the event, the Invention Studio and The Hive will be open to provide you with the tools and assistance to turn your ideas into reality!
Join us as HackGT ventures into the world of prototyping. Create something novel, something hilarious, or something that changes the world!
New to hardware? No problem! The bootcamp route has resources for beginners to help you build your dream hack!
Learn the magic behind the hardware! If you're interested in designing your own circuits, working with microcontrollers, and building wearables, then this route is for you!
See the power of hardware and software working together! We'll provide a variety of robotics kits, including Arduino robotics kits, LEGO Mindstorms, and Cozmos.

Yes! On Saturday, the Invention Studio will be open from 10 AM to 8 PM, while The Hive will be open from 10 AM to 12 AM.
Checked out hardware such as Raspberry Pis, Oculus Rifts, etc. are the only things you cannot keep. Everything else is fair game!
