Join us on Saturday, December 7, 2019 at our Altoona Campus (508 58th Street, Altoona, PA 16602) for Major League Hacking's Local Hack Day: Build Day! Build Day is a day-long global hackathon where you can bring your ideas to life by building new projects and working together with others. Participate in workshops and talks with a community around the world. Over the course of 12 hours, attendees will use hardware and software to build everything from computers to websites to apps and more.
Lunch will be provided. The event is from 9AM–9PM, but you can arrive at anytime.
