Ready. Set. Build.
BuildGT is back for its second iteration, and it will be better than ever! More hardware, more workshops, and more time to create!
Feel unprepared? Don't worry! We'll have plenty of mentors on hand to help with projects and tooling. Also, check out BuildGT Week - a week-long celebration of hardware hacking that will feature hands-on workshops from HackGT and our partners.
On the day of the event, the Invention Studio and The Hive will be open to provide you with the tools and assistance to turn your ideas into reality!
Join us as HackGT ventures into the world of prototyping. Create something novel, something hilarious, or something that changes the world!
