On April 22nd, Hackaday communities around the world are coming together to create tech solutions for social change. Join us at Open Source Maker Labs for a one-day hackathon - our own edition of our worldwide brainstorming session, Hackaday World Create Day!
Form a team (or work on your own) and submit a project to the Hackaday Prize Design Your Concept challenge. Check out the challenge details here.

The day kicks off with introductions and a quick brief about the day's objectives. Then we'll form our teams, brainstorm and create our proposals according to the Design Your Concept entry requirements
For registered participants, lunch will be provided by our sponsoring partner, Mexico City Cuisine. At the end of the day, we'll share our ideas and feedback in a round of lightning pitches. Finally, we'll wrap up by submitting our project ideas to the Hackaday Prize Design Your Concept
A judging panel will select the best project presented.
The winning team receives a six-month membership at OSML to develop their idea for the Hackaday Challenge.
If there ever was a perfect time to get rolling on that idea you've been kicking around, to learn something new, and meet other awesome, inventive people... that time is now! Come create with us on April 22nd!
