No idea is off limits!

You can work on any project or idea that you're passionate about.  Absolutely anything.  Plus we have multiple ways that make it easy to connect with other students who have the skills to help you complete your idea: sticky notes, partner student organizations, workshops, plus really cool community members who are experts within their fields.

 

A little history

Built with:_____ was launched in April of 2014.  There were ~75 students and community members who gathered in NuSpark to create, network, and build for six hours (some stayed as late as 2am).  
Built with:_____ 2 attracted over 110 students representing 39 different majors.  It also added 5 workshops throughout the night, hosted by the partner student organizations.  
Built with:_____ 3 almost grew the event by 100%.  It brought together over 200 students and community members from 48 different majors.  It featured 9 different workshops throughout the night, which were put on by 10 different student orgs.
Built with:_____ 4 about 150 students from 45 different majors. We scaled back the number of workshops and increased the presence of mentors during the event. Our student outreach went beyond just VT students and welcomed Radford University as well.  

Built with:_____ 5 is ready to take the fun to the New Classroom Building. Looks like the University caught wind of Built With:_____'s success and received our request to build a new and improved space designed specifically for the event. Let's go!

The Sticky Notes

The Sticky Notes


When you first show up, you'll write "skills" that you have on sticky notes with your name on the FRONT.  


There will be people there to help you if you think you don't have anything to offer (everyone does).  The sticky notes will be placed on a big wall.  At any point during the night, if you find yourself needing help with something, this is where the sticky notes come in.  You can walk up to a wall, find the skill that you need help with and then we'll call out the name on the back and introduce you two.
