Yes, spending 24 hours working on a project outside of school may seem a little daunting but we promise you will not regret it! First you will make tons of fun memories, meet new people, make a lot of new connections, get free stuff, free food, meet corporate sponsors, and potentially win big prizes. Secondly, on a more serious note, you will further develop your skills in coding, working with hardware, and working on a projects students do outside of school - its interesting, shows passion, unique, and something to talk about during interviews!
Firearms, knives, and weapons of any kind are banned. If you can't bring it on an airplane, don't bring it here!
