Rocket.Build Community

What is Rocket.Build Community?

New this year, we’re inviting students around the world to take part in our Rocket.Build Community hackathons. These events give up-and-coming developers an opportunity to collaborate with local Rocketeers, developing software solutions that address real-world problems specific to their communities. Rocket.Build Community teams are encouraged to work with nearby non-profits or other meaningful local causes. You can find a list of all announced locations below, along with a few of the projects the Rocket.Build Community teams are tackling this year.

Register now!* and connect with Rocketeers and student technologists in your area to begin making a difference in your community.
