MakeMIT is back for its 9th year! Our event will be in a hybrid format this year and we are 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! Apply at my.makemit.org by January 14th at 11:59 pm ET!

We will have in-person division for MIT students and a virtual division for students from other colleges. For in-person participants, the event will happen over one weekend (Feb 5-6) and for virtual participants, the event will happen over one week (Jan 29 - Feb 6).

For the virtual division, every team will submit a project proposal and a materials list by January 30th at 12:00 PM (noon). We will review these proposals and choose teams to advance to the build phase in which each team will be reimbursed up to $300 (subject to change) for materials and tools to build their project in the next few days. Projects will be judged virtually over Zoom on January 6th.

For the in-person division, teams will build their projects over the span of 24 hours (there will not be a separate design and build phase) using materials and equipment that will be provided at the venue. Projects will be judged in person on February 6th.
