What if I’m a beginner?

Every innovator needs to start somewhere! There will be workshops and mentors on board to help you dive into the world of design. No experience required!

What materials will be provided?

We will be providing a wide range of hardware and prototyping materials to make your experience successful.

What about prizes?

On Sunday, you will be presenting your project to a panel of judges based on the technical difficulty, innovation, originality, and practicality of your product. The top 3 teams will be awarded prizes.

Do we have to stay the whole time?

All participants must be present at registration on Friday night. The event will break from Friday night to Saturday morning, but then will continue through the night to Sunday afternoon. Students are encouraged to stay for the full duration! We will also provide rooms where participants can rest for periods during the night. We recommend students bring a blanket because it can get chilly in the Innovation Hub.
