#IoTHackDay is a fun, FREE day that brings together teams, novel ideas, and an entrepreneurial spirit to dream up and build cool new devices to solve every day problems. Teams submit their ideas and build their teams ahead of the event!

After hacking for 12 hours, at 8:00 pm on Oct 17th we will have an audience vote were the top teams receive hardware and prizes!

Kids (and adults)... come that day to the same location and learn how to create your own glowing costumes! We will have sample materials to create LED glowing costumes that you can program with a low cost Arduino computer.
