Stupid Stuff No One Needs & Terrible Ideas Hackathon

Stupid Stuff No One Needs & Terrible Ideas Hackathon

A co-ed, one-and-a-half day event where teams conceptualize and create projects that have no value whatsoever. Andrew Williams from Elite Innovations will kick off the hackathon by teaching the principles of Design Thinking so that you can take a smart approach to creating useless inventions. Bring an idea if you want or join a team with an idea you like, but leave the serious stuff at work where it belongs.

Everyone is welcome! No computer programming experience required - analog or digital projects, your choice. Men can come as well!

Cost: $10
