Uncommon Makes is a day-long experience focused on encouraging University of Chicago students to engage with new technologies, build a project of their own, and get involved with the tech community on campus. We'll provide space, food, workshops, time, and support for you to have a uniquely uncommon time.
+ Where is Uncommon Makes?
Uncommon Makes is at the Polsky Exchange North, 1452 E 53rd St. It's accessible by the Polsky Express and 53rd St. Express shuttles by day, and the Central and East shuttles by night.
+ I've never been to a hackathon, can I come? What should I bring?
Of course! This is a space for you to explore on your own terms and learn something new. We will be providing as much support as we can along the way. Bring a laptop - we'll provide the rest!
+ Do I have to be a CS major to participate?
Everyone is welcome, regardless of major.
+ I'm a graduate student at UChicago, can I come?
+ I don't attend UChicago, can I come?
Unfortunately not, but check out our hackathon in February!
+ Do I need a team?
Nope! But we will facilitate making teams ;)
