Bad Ideas Weekend 2015

Friday Jan. 23 - Sunday Jan. 25

Have you always wanted to design and build, but have been frustrated by silly requirements and "good engineering practice?" Well, fret no more and come to the 2015 Bad Ideas competition, where your ideas can really take wing and crash straight to the ground. The weekend will also be packed with numerous smaller events, so come by any time, grab some free food, and join us in a celebration of bad ideas. No skills required, tools and materials provided. Alumni and all members of the MIT community are expressly invited.

Bad Ideas Chairs this year are Rachel Aviles and Sarah Tortorici. If you have any questions about Bad Ideas 2015, email
