Put your talent, passion, and determination to the test at a high-tech event that will feature all of the latest trends and technologies.

The goal of this Build-a-thon is to prototype ideas, products and services that are able to create social and economic value for the community by hacking everyday objects and using open data, open-source libraries, public APIs, frameworks for fast prototyping and software development, microcontrollers, sensors, and other hardware (e.g. 3D printers, beacons, wearables, etc.).

This Build-a-thon will provide an opportunity for brilliant young talents to create their works with the help of mentors and experts, who—together with the panel of judges (see below)—will be on hand throughout their project, while also experiencing the unforgettable thrill of coming together with peers who share the same passion for technology and innovation.

We’re proud to announce Mozilla as the official sponsor for the event, and Ms. Shina Dhingra from the Mozilla Reps community as a technical mentor for the event.
