MakeMIT is back for its 8th year! Although our event will be virtual this year, we are still dedicated to creating an innovative and creative atmosphere geared towards those who are excited and passionate about designing and building. Hackers should have no problem making their dreams come true no matter how challenging the ideas may be!

During our 2 week event from March 6th to 21st, the first weekend will be focused on design and the teams that blow our judges away will have a $500 budget to build their product for the next two weeks!
