Overnight For Participants:

There is no official space to sleep at Technarium, although you can stay working pretty late or overnight, as long as you check in with one of the mentors and they allow you to stay.

Otherwise, please let us know if you need a hand finding a place for the night! We can’t guarantee anything, but we may help you find a place to crash.


FAQ:

  • Will participants be able to come and go during the event?

YES! Of course – just hold on to your badge and you will be able to come and go as you please.

  • Can participants stay overnight to work?

Yes, but do make sure to check in with one of the mentors if you do. It is not recommended to crash at the venue – please check out Overnight for participants section.

  • Do we need to bring our own materials/components or equipment for our projects?

We will provide some of the basic building materials & components, but you should bring your own if you already know what you will need, and have those at hand. Check out Equipment on site section for the main equipment that will be available during the event.

  • I don’t have a clear project idea yet. Is that a problem?

Not at all! You have time until the event itself to come up with hacks you’d like to do, and if that doesn’t happen you’ll still be able to choose your favorite idea and join a team from of all the pitches at the opening of the event.

  • I don’t have any technical skills for building/programming things. Is that a problem?

Not a all! There will be plenty of participants and mentors with a range of skills to help you and your team out during the event, so that is nothing to worry about!

  • Is there a specific hardware or software focus of the event?

Nope! Everything goes – as long as it’s got something fun or serious to do with science!

  • How do I pitch my idea & form a team?
