Bring your phone, your laptop, your chargers, and any other tech or hardware that you think would be helpful to create a prototype (keep it to items that can fit in a regular-sized backpack). We do provide access to tools in the e-spaces, 3D printers, and a few tech components such as Arduino boards.

Dress comfortably and feel free to bring a pillow or anything you may want on hand for a nap. Food and snacks will be provided, but if you have specific dietary needs, you may want to consider bringing something for yourself. We also refrigerators onsite as needed.
