Blueprint is a weekend-long learnathon and hackathon for local high school students held on MIT’s campus. Learn from MIT students, make new friends, and build something cool!

Over the course of Blueprint, high school students will be able to form a team, decide on a project, and develop it from start to finish with the support of our mentors. After Blueprint, they will not only have this project but also the tools to learn more about programming on their own and take their skills even further.

Judging Criteria

  • Gavel
    Our judging will be done through Gavel (found here: https://github.com/anishathalye/gavel), so ultimately, it's up to the judges to decide their criteria, but here are some guidelines to impress them. Good luck and happy hacking!
  • Creativity
    Don't be afraid to try something new and crazy that no one has ever seen before!
  • Passion
    You should be excited about your project so that we can be excited as well!
  • Completeness
    It would be nice to have a working prototype to demonstrate to the judges, but don't worry about making a full on ready-to-ship project!
