January 29 - 31, 2021
The annual Fashion/Tech Hackathon is a dynamic, cross-circular event allowing teams of students from all across the U.S. and Canada, to learn new skills and create innovative technology that will help define the future of fashion.
Participating students spend 36 hours developing a project of their choice in the form of a technology-enhanced garment or wearable-responsive web application. All teams are given free access to the TechStyleLAB, the Fashion School's digital textile fabrication space, along with a variety of free electronic and textile materials. Faculty mentors are on hand throughout the weekend to assist the students with any issues or questions they have during the event.
The Fashion/Tech Hackathon in partnership with the Fashion School’s TechStyleLAB, Kent State's Design Innovation, high tech knit company Evolution St. Louis, Kent State’s LaunchNET and the Kent State computer science student organization HacKSU.
