Calling all engineering students! Join this two-day hackathon and work as a team to solve a challenge facing our city.
With inspirational guest speakers, and mentors on hand to help you along the way, your team will have plenty of time for brainstorming before arriving at a creative solution. The theme of the hackathon this year is ‘Building inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable communities in our city’. Each participant will receive an information pack a week prior to the start of the event, with the problem reveal on day one. The event will culminate on day two, with each team taking the floor for 7 minutes to pitch their idea to a panel of expert judges.
This will be a fun exercise that challenges students to solve under pressure, work together and hone their presentation skills. There will also be plenty of catering provided throughout the 2 days, and a team first prize of $1000 and other cash prizes up for grabs.
Registration is a two step-process. Step 1:
