TechX is a student-run organization that aims to empower MIT students by bringing cutting-edge technology, new ideas, and top tech-innovators to campus. They organize several events including HackMIT, xFair, MakeMIT, Blueprint, THINK, and ProjX.
Programs & Opportunities
HackMIT is MIT’s largest hackathon. Over a 24-hour period in early fall, 1,000 hackers from around the world gather on MIT’s campus to experiment and innovate on software and hardware projects. This is your weekend to dust off old ideas or try something completely new.
xFair is a career fair and a tech expo combined. The result is a unique showcase of raw talent, raw ideas, and raw passion. With 2,000+ MIT undergraduate and graduate students in attendance, xFair is MIT’s largest career fair & tech expo.
MakeMIT is a hardware hackathon that invites 250+ hackers to MIT every February. Hackers get to build and innovate with microcontrollers, laser cutting, 3D-printing, and more for over 15 hours, after which they present their projects in a public expo.
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!
The THINK Scholars Program is an educational outreach initiative that promotes STEM by supporting and funding projects developed by high school students. In 2016, THINK launched a sister-program, THINK: Out of the Box, an initiative that specifically targets projects developed by high schoolers in the Greater Boston area.
ProjX is a branch of TechX that provides funding for MIT student projects every semester, helping students bring their dream projects to life and giving them a chance to demo their creations at the annual xFair.
