BRICKHACK 7

FEB 20-21 | RIT DIGITAL HACKATHON

What is a Hackathon?

A Hackathon is an invention marathon. Any student can attend! Really, any student... and it's completely free.

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.

Prizes

Confetti Ricky the Brick

Despite going digital, you can still win prizes at BrickHack!

This year, we'll have more than 10 prize categories for you to compete in — more info to come on Devpost.

We'll have physical prizes shipped out to United States and Canada residents, while digital prizes are open game for everybody!

Check out our FAQ for more details.

Frequently Asked Questions

BrickHack 7 will be run entirely digitally, via Discord and Zoom.

More details will be sent out as the event draws closer, including the server link.

For now, make sure to register for updates!

Anyone currently enrolled as a student can attend!

If you don't fit that description, you're absolutely welcome to attend as a mentor or volunteer. All attendees must be 18 years or older.

Nope! If you have an existing team, that's great — otherwise, we'll provide time to form new teams with other hackers at the start of the event.

Please note that you can have up to a total of 4 members in a team.

Yes. All students, RIT or not, need to apply to the event.

Our main limitation is space. Even though we're a digital event, we need to provide judging, chat moderation, interpreting services, and more. All of these require staff, and we only have so many resources to run the event.

Maybe next year we'll have AI run the event...

No. You can start thinking of ideas beforehand, but no work can be done!

(No designs, no UML diagrams, no code, etc.)

We've put a lot of thought into making sure all of BrickHack can be enjoyed by everyone. We're planning to have interpreting services and audio captioning to boot, with more accommodations to come in the future.

During registration, put any services that you require in the "special needs" field, and we'll do our best to meet them!

For any outstanding questions, email [email protected].

Soon!

Every application is considered on a first-come, first-serve basis. So register early! We'll send an email out if you're accepted.

This year, we'll have mentors from various tech companies available to help, as well as other hackers who can volunteer their knowledge throughout the event.

During the opening ceremony, we'll go over how to request help from a mentor!
