Let's Build

Georgia Tech
Instructional Center

March 2nd, 9:00 AM



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, look out for BuildGT Week - a week-long celebration of hardware hacking that will feature hands-on workshops from HackGT and our partners.

Join us as HackGT ventures into the world of prototyping. Create something novel, something hilarious, or something that changes the world!
