Hack@Brown presents:

outer Space

February 3-4, 2024


This year, Hack@Brown is an exploration of all that is unknown, free of limitations that weigh us down. We'll provide a home base of help and support, but our hackathon is the start of a mission to discover new technologies and imagine the future as AI accelerates. Get ready to ideate, design, create, and hack!

Take off with us! 🚀✨


Hackathons are a unique opportunity for those interested in software, hardware, and design to collaborate in a sprint-like event, creating their own work and projects from scratch. Hackers will compete in teams to develop technical products that solve real world problems, target prize tracks, or are just for fun! At the end of the hackathon, teams will have the chance to pitch their projects to judges, who will provide feedback and award prizes based on certain criteria.

Hack@Brown will be an overnight hackathon for college students, not just from Brown but from all around, to come together and spend the weekend learning new skills and building exciting, impactful projects! This year, we will still be offering our design track, where participants can learn about the design process, from creating initial wireframes to eventually designing a high-fidelity mockup.

While hackathons are competitive in nature, we want Hack@Brown to be centered around learning as much as possible. We'll be hosting a keynote speaker, numerous workshops, and panels during the hackathon for everyone to have the opportunity to learn beyond just building projects with their team members. Come join us to celebrate Hack@Brown’s 10th year!
