Our mission is to make the world more
ATHack matches groups of students with clients from the Cambridge/Boston community who are looking to work with students to prototype an assistive technology solution that addresses a problem they are having in their day-to-day life. ATHack has two primary events: a “Meet The Co-Designers” dinner, followed two weeks later by a day-long hackathon. Teams are welcome to do as much as they would like in between the two events!
After the dinner, hackers have the opportunity to request specialized materials for their project. On the day of the hackathon, hackers have access to a workspace that includes hand tools, 3D printers, a laser cutter, a full machine shop, and basic stock materials (e.g. adhesives, fasteners).
Every year, ATHack is hosted around early March. This year's hackathon will be happening on March 2nd, while the “Meet The Co-Designers” dinner will be on Monday, February 11, 2019.
You can sign up to be a co-designer or to work with one.
