HackCU was started four years ago by a group of passionate students who wanted to provide other students the time and space to work on projects they don’t normally work on through school. Since then we’ve been committed to fulfilling our mission of bringing you high-quality, inclusive events open to people of all levels of experience.
Like making gadgets? Enjoy programming Arduino's? Design creative works? We will provide the space and the resources for you to express your creativity, ingenuity, and determination to create anything you want to. Whether you’re building your first robot, dabbling in the workshop, or hacking your own laptop, Phase is for you. Phase is for people of all backgrounds and experiences. So, come and join us!
Over a 19 hour period, you’ll work in a team of up to 4 hackers to make anything your heart desires! We’ll provide you with a bunch of prototyping resources and lots of food to keep you fueled.
In order to check-in, you must have a government-issued ID. But, you should also bring your laptop, laptop charger, phone, chargers, headphones and a reusable water bottle. If you’d like to bring something off-the- shelf that we are not providing, make sure to shoot us an email!
Absolutely! We encourage makers of all levels to come build and learn! We’ve got tons of mentors and we really focus on catering to newcomers’ needs by providing tutorials and online resources. We are extremely beginner friendly!
We welcome any student 18 or older to participate!
Phase is absolutely free to attend. We will also provide meals, snacks, and refreshments!
It is not likely that we will be offering travel reimbursement for this event. We will be offering for our main event on February, HackCU, if you are interested.
We are currently working with sponsors and providers to finalize a list of available hardware. We will announce it on our social media platforms. If there’s something you want to see, feel free to send us an email and we’ll see what we can do!
Don’t have a team? We got you covered. We will have time before hacking begins for hackers to get together and form teams. You can have a maximum of 4 members on your team.
Plenty, we will provide three meals a day as well as snacks, drinks, and caffeine.
