On May 27th the UCSC IEEE will be hosting its second annual Hack-a-Bot (Formerly known as Hack-y-Thon)!
This fun, low stakes robotics competition focuses on collaboration and learning from failure. We welcome students of all experience levels and backgrounds in order to encourage students to learn and teach each other both within and across disciplines.
For just $15 you get a full range of parts, three meals, a shirt and, potentially, prizes!

Hack-a-Bot is open to any current UCSC Undergraduate or Graduate student regardless of their year, major or background experience.
Can I sign up by myself or in a team?
