  • Friday night, 11 April, we'll be getting together for a pre-hackathon reception at the Maklab's new location from 6:30 - 10 in the evening.

    On Saturday morning, 12 April, head on over to the Livingston Building at the University of Strathclyde, and up to the 11th floor. We'll start with coffee, tea, a few lightning talks to get the creativity flowing, and then project pitches before we break into teams to get to work.

    Have an idea for a solution you'd like to pitch? Contact Lisha (link in the sidebar) and she'll give you a 5 minute slot to tell everyone what your idea is so you can recruit a team to work with you. 

    Bring your laptop and any of your own gear or components you need to work on your project. Maklab will bring some of their equipment to the Livingstone Building so you can 3D print parts and build out your awesome robot. If you need additional equipment or studio space for a hardware project, you can pick up a day pass and head over to the Maklab where no one will tell you that soldering is too dangerous for amateurs. 

    We'll serve lunch and dinner on Saturday. You can go home whenever you like, or stay in the space and work through the night with the help of a can of Nae Danger. Make sure you are there on Sunday morning, though, in time for more coffee, tea and project check ins.

    After lunch on Sunday, you'll have just a few short hours to finish your projects. We'll stop at 4:00pm for final project presentations. The judges will consult, and when they come out, awards will be given, good byes will be said, and then we start pining for next year's Space Apps Challenge!
