UniHack- 48 hour social hackathon
Fri, 10 Feb 2017, 18:30 – Sun, 12 Feb 2017, 16:00 GMT
With the advent of the “Internet of Things” (IoT) any device that uses electricity can connect to the internet. As a result, the last decade has seen a huge increase in the number of ‘smart’ or ‘connected’ devices, from wearables, to the infrastructure of entire buildings.
We’re looking to assemble a diverse range students; from the technical skills of engineers and computer science students, to the entrepreneurial flair of business students, and the creativity of languages, social science and life and health science students. Working in teams to brainstorm ideas and develop product services, apps and projects that take advantage of the increasing use of technology and how this can be of benefit to community and the emerging world.
UniHack brings together students, corporates, the third sector, and the local community to create innovative soloutions to real-world challenges. The goal is to ensure that the next-generation of problem solvers are equipped with the necessary skills to effect positive change, that corporates have access to the best talent, and that the local community can benefit from innovative and entrepreneurial solutions.
Be one of 50 students who will form teams to develop an app, service, product or campaign that solves a real-life problem.
FREE food and refreshments will be provided throughout the whole event.
it is not necessary to work through the night although you may be inspired to.
