A hackathon is a social event that brings together technical and other interested people who have the skills and organisational capacity to create innovative solutions to a proposed problem within time constraints.
We’ve just tallied up our prizes, and there will be over $25,000 in cash prizes, demonstration grants, and engineering/tech internships with leading Australian humanitarian firms. This is our biggest prize pool EVER!
No. Participants MUST register as individuals for the hackathon. Participants will be formed into groups and will work as a team throughout the hackathon. We encourage students to work collaboratively in cross-discipline teams and will give students time to get to know one another and form their teams.
