Brick City's Premiere Hackathon

BrickHack brings designers, developers, and all sorts of makers together for 24 hours to create something from nothing.

Mentors and industry representatives will lend expertise and watch as you dive into learning, developing, and producing a unique project.

Expect lots of free food, swag, coffee, and all-you-can-print 3D printers! From the novices to the experts, from designers to engineers, this one's for you!

Watch a recap from last year

What is a hackathon?

A Hackathon is an invention marathon. Any student can attend! Really, any student...and it's completely free. Don't worry about food, internet, or travel.

Students work in teams and mentors are present to offer help. Sponsors attend to help, recruit, and promote their products. Teams compete in different categories and prizes are awarded, but everyone learns and everyone wins!

Come spend 24 hours with us at BrickHack and dedicate time to learn, collaborate, build, and innovate.
