Each year students from across campus get the chance to show the Cornell and Ithaca communities the technology projects they have been working on all year – and receive monetary prizes for their work!

Organized and hosted by the Cornell Ann S. Bowers College of Computing and Information Science, BOOM is also made possible by extensive corporate support. Student's projects are featured from many disciplines, including games, robotics, autonomous vehicles, mobile phone apps, and more.

BOOM is free and open to the public. Middle school students and their teachers are particularly encouraged to attend. Parents and Guardians must retain supervision of their minor children during this event. We hope to see you there.
