We have one goal: make stuff. 24-hour engineering make-a-thon.

We’re excited to announce the return of MakeHarvard! We are a hardware-based hackathon created to empower engineers, designers, and innovators. 

Apply here!

MakeHarvard was founded upon a belief of the importance of a collaborative maker experience. We’re encouraging students to turn concepts into reality by providing them with a platform to envision their new ideas within teams and model a cohesive product using Computer-Aided Design software—we offer a wide-open canvas for their wildest ideas.
