$Fee = null;

This hackathon is free of charge! Just register (or you will not get food or swag) and come down!


This event is open only to:

  • Students of all levels in any educational institution in Singapore (yes, exchange students count as well!)
  • Anyone waiting entry into an educational institution - e.g. NSFs, PhD candidates, etc.


  • A team can have between 1 and 4 members.
  • You can sign up without a team. A team will be assigned to you at your request.
  • All teams need to stay for the duration of the event. We recommend bringing sleeping bags. Teams that leave will be disqualified.
    • Clarification: Team members may leave as long as there's at least one member present throughout the competition. (i.e. the presence of the team is defined by the disjunction of that of each team member)


  • Build something new. You may reuse code for specific components, but recycling an entire project is not okay.
  • Projects will be judged based on creativity, technical accomplishment, polish, and usefulness, in that order. Decisions made by the judges are final.
  • Hardware projects are welcomed!
