UWB Hackathon Planning Committee

The UWB Hackathon Planning Committee is a joint effort between several groups on campus. 

The UWB Hackathon Planning Committee is open to all students to participate and is actively seeking students of different experiences, majors and backgrounds to help ensure its continued success. Last but not least, the UWB Hackathon Planning Committee is grateful to SAF for providing SAF Contingency Funding to help realize this mission.



It is the mission of the ASME Club at the University of Washington Bothell to provide enriching experiences and activities to engineering students, and those interested in the STEM fields. The experiences will help grow their professional skills while developing a strong sense of social entrepreneurship. The relationships formed through experiences with: guest speakers, professional development, technical projects, community engagement, student advocacy and a focus on diversity in the ME program will help our members gain valuable insight for their future careers.

uwb sme

This is the University of Washington Bothell Chapter of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers. SME is committed to creating educational and career opportunities to benefit UWB students. We plan events such as tours of local facilities, networking career fairs, and other professional development events.

We are a team of self-motivated university students, working to apply our skills outside the classroom. Our members come from a variety of backgrounds and majors, and are able to collaborate with each other in a way that no classroom provides. We are currently finishing our first year as a team, and are planning to compete in the NASA Robotic Mining Competition during the 2016-2017 school year. Additionally, we have several off-season projects, including an RC car and an autonomous Star Wars mouse droid.

What if the people who design and build our technological future included members of radically diverse groups, instead of the comparatively like-minded research scientists and product designers who typically drive the work in these fields? What new directions might we open up, and what kinds of beneficial use cases might we discover? The Digital Future Lab (DFL) at the University of Washington Bothell approaches creative and speculative projects from a radically diverse team perspective, where radical means expanding our common notions of diversity to include neurodiversity and other kinds of differences.


uwb makerspace

The UWB Makerspace is a space where students can collaborate, study, and explore. Located on the first floor of Discovery Hall, the Makerspace is a place where students can work in teams or individually on their curricular and co-curricular endeavors. The space is designed to be a creative environment with the equipment students need for both group and makerspace activities.
