Hack the Universe
HackCWRU brings together the brightest and most creative students to promote unrestricted technological innovation. Hosted at Case Western Reserve University, over 150 students will spend 36 hours bringing their imagination into the real world. Attendees will work with peers, mentors, company sponsors, and a whole suite of rapid prototyping equipment. From 3d printers to pcb routers to fully blown wood and metal shops, Sears think[box] has it all. Don't be intimidated, however. You don't have to know what you're doing to attend.
