Red Robot Hackathon aims to be an unforgettable experience for novice and veteran hackers alike!
We are a group of passionate hackers and makers
from the CMU Robotics Club who want spread our love of
creating through a hardware-based hackathon. Traditionally,
hardware hacking's barrier of entry has been pretty high.
Ideas are no good without the access to the parts, tools,
and expertise to create your idea. For someone just starting out, figuring out
how to do all of this can be quite intimidating. That's why we're here to present
the Red Robot Hackathon: a hardware hackathon designed to help anyone with
any level of experience get started with designing and playing with hardware!
Red Robot aims to break down the border between novices and hacking by providing a complete network of support for beginner and expert makers alike. Each team will get a starter kit of parts and compete in a series of mini-challenges designed to prepare them for the secret competition. Qualified mentors are available to help all hackers. In addition, plenty of food, drinks, and prizes will be provided to fuel you and your project. We can't wait to see what you make!
Why should you spend time at Red Robot Hackathon?
Meet new people who share your interests, hang out with fellow club members online, and make friends with all of our cool sponsors!
No hackathon would be complete without prizes! Prizes will be awarded for both mini-challenges and the secret competition!
The planned schedule is below. While we'll do our best to keep this calendar updated, you should treat the Roboclub Calendar as the final source of truth.
