      MonkeyBars Spring Build 2013

      It's something... new

      MonkeyBars Spring Build is a Hackathon unlike any Chicago has ever seen. Build is not simply a coding challenge, it is a place where anyone from the hardware hacker to the designer can, with the support and resources from the MonkeyBars team and partners, bring an idea to the realm of reality in just 24 hours.


      Without some of the craziness... 

      We have also thrown traditional judging out the window; MonkeyBars gives prizes for being awesome. While we will definitely reward you for building a robot that cures cancer, we believe that having a passion for learning and creating is the mark of a true innovator and, thus, should be rewarded.


      From a team called MonkeyBars... 

      MonkeyBars creates spaces for designers, software/hardware developers and tech enthusiasts to learn, collaborate and build. We collaborate with companies that are on the edge of technical innovation and boast industry leading culture in order to facilitate events that encourage Chicago’s tech community to create without the bottom line in mind.


      So what are you waiting for? 

      A 13,000 sq ft rapid prototyping lab with 3D printers. 4 meals. All the snacks you can eat. Gaming tournaments and prizes all night. What’s your reason for staying at home?
