Build IoT devices that can sense, connect, infer, and act.

Are you passionate about solving problems with tiny computers? Then come to MIT Internet of Things Hackathon, where we’ll task participants with building innovative IoT devices!

At the MIT Internet of Things Hackathon, you will build IoT devices that can “sense, connect, infer, and act.” Participants will be free to envision and build any device they see representing that mission, and that combine hardware, software, and data science. Participants will be able to join teams or participate independently.

Early participants get TI Launchpads, Particle Internet Buttons, and Electric Imp Explorer Kits while supplies last. We encourage all participants to bring any hardware they think might be necessary for their projects.

The hackathon will take place on Saturday June 3, 2017, and will include students from the MIT Internet of Things Bootcamp taking place May 29 – June 3, 2017.

The hackathon will be in classrooms 32-124 and 32-144 in the Ray and Maria Stata Center (Building 32). Breakfast and lunch will be served.

Hackathon winners will be determined by a panel of judges comprised of MIT faculty and IoT professionals and entrepreneurs.
