Discover, share, and hack on hardware

May 11-13, 2018

Teardown is a three-day, hardware-focused event by Crowd Supply in association with Make+Think+Code @ PNCA. Think of it as live-action Crowd Supply, but with fewer packing peanuts. We’ll be bringing together hardware affecionados from around the world to celebrate, inspect, create, and, of course, teardown hardware. There will be long-time Crowd Supply creators and backers, as well as people we’re meeting for the first time. There will be hardware, art, food, drink, puzzles, workshops, tutorials, talks, music, field trips, and friends. Most of all, there will be ideas and projects to explore and inspire. We hope you’ll join us!
