For all the interested young minds

Please note that this page does not contain all the important information. For full information, please watch the opening ceremony.



For the fifth edition of BrébeufHx, we have decided to do a hybrid event. Participants will therefore have the opportunity and convenience to choose whether they prefer to attend the event from the comfort of their living room, or come and participate on-site, and enjoy the activities offered.


Please note that the vaccination passport will be required in order to participate in the event.

Important information on challenges and regulations will be provided during the opening ceremony.


The Closing Ceremony

The closing ceremony will be broadcast on Youtube at 3 p.m. on  January 10, 2021 on the BrébeufHx channel.

The winners will be announced during the closing ceremony.



The challenges will be announced during the opening ceremony and a document on the challenges will be available on the website in the section Resources & Info from 7 p.m. on January 8, 2021.

The challenges are, for the most part, created to help the community, including our social partners (NPOs).

In order to create the best products for NPOs and to encourage you to continue your projects, we also have long-term challenges this year. For these, you can either continue a challenge you started during the event or start again with another challenge. Those who did not participate in the January 8-10 event can also face long-term challenges.

Challenges will be delivered on Devpost (for advanced challenges) and Google Forms (for beginner challenges).

There will be prizes for beginners and advanced, as well as several raffles. For the full list of prices, please see the last page of the challenge booklet.
