Portland Community College’s Sylvania Campus is hosting a three-day “Hackathon” to develop ideas and hack hardware. The goal of this event is to have fun working with a team designing technology.
Attendees will have access to Intel microcomputers, Autodesk software, soldering equipment, 3D printers, laser cutters, sewing machines and mentors. Point of the event is to be creative and let the imagination fly. The “Hackathon” is perfect for makers, entrepreneurs, designers, engineers, creators, artists, innovators, developers and students from PCC. On the last day your team gets the chance to showcase everything they have accomplished in-front of experts and professionals. Individual prizes will be raffled off, and team prizes will be awarded at the end.
