Let's learn together!

Students from all around the midwest will be spending the weekend building everything from their first website, to drones you can fly with your wrist, and we'd love it if you joined!


View full rules


All hackers must be students 18 or older and either attending school, or within one semester of their graduation.


Your project must be your team's original work, only worked on during the weekend. 

  • It's acceptable to use open source libraries/api's/sdks and other public code in your project, but the overwhelming majority should be completed during the weekend.
  • If you think something is questionable, ask (or don't do it).

Submit a brief description of your project, a link to the source code if possible, and a video/gif of your project in action.

 Make sure to select the prizes you'd like to opt into.
