Hackhardware is a virtual hackathon allows students of many different backgrounds to learn about engineering techniques in a fun setting. Join the Boston Community and make projects that work and connections that last.


Only students currently attending Boston University will be accepted. All participants must be 18+ and must be living in United States.


Any related code from the project must be submitted along with details of the project. A PowerPoint and/or video must be submitted.
