The challenge will be based on the Arduino Uno. We also have a wide assortment of peripheral boards, sensors and other hardware components.

How much does this cost?

To help fund our components, we are charging each participants $15 to compete. You will need to pay on Eventbrite after being accepted, before confirming your participation.

What if I know very little about hardware - can I still come?

Yes! The Hardware Hackathon is for everyone from beginners to veterans. There will be a series of workshops throughout the event, where you will have the opportunity to learn about hardware design. Also, if you ever get stuck on your project - just ask one of the mentors that will be there on the day!

What do I need to bring?

The hardware is on us - just bring identification, a laptop and your ideas!

I don’t have a team or an idea - what should I do?

No worries! We can help you find a team at the event. Also, there will be mentors present at the event to help you generate ideas.

Everyone is going to be accepted right?

Unfortunately, no because there is only a limited number of hardware, compared to the number of applicants. You will be selected based on your experience and enthusiasm on hardware.
