Science, Technology, Art, and Hacking


January 25-26, 2020

SparkleCon is the coolest science fair/art show you will ever attend. The 2-day indoor/outdoor event is dedicated to the hacker principles of sharing, learning, and utilizing toolkit skills. SparkleCon celebrates the creative and generative aspects of hacking/engineering, including building, 3-D printing, and social engineering.


Come join our hacker family for a weekend of creativity and discovery in this, our 7th year of SPARKLECON!


You do cool things - and we want to know about it! Sparklecon VII is accepting applications for speakers and workshops. 

SparkleCon is a two day event that celebrates creativity and hacking. We are looking for people who want to share their love of making, doing, and exploring. From fire breathing robots, to lock picking, to privacy, Sparklecon provides a space for sharing expertise, creativity, and play. No matter if you are a console cowpoke, a poobah of prototyping, or a provocateur of particle physics we invite you to tell us about your latest upcycled sunshine rocket laser whatsit, or whatever else you have been working on. The application period closes after midnight December 8th, so get a move on it.

TL;DR: Have a talk or workshop to lead? Submit your proposals NOW! Deadline for CFP: 2019/12/08
