is postponed to Term 2
Our goal is to create a diverse hackathon that would suit different personalities and push young talents to work together in order to create a cross-disciplinary project.
HackIT is a 24 hours hackathon promoting women in technology as well as diverse teams in London. We aim at diversifying the tech field, decreasing the gender gap. Around 10 teams of 5 students formed with an equal number of female and male participants as well as technical and non-technical participants will take part in this event.
27-28 November 2021
Theme: Emerging from Covid-19: Lessons Learned and Opportunities
Emerging from the pandemic: Opportunities under the “New Normal”. The past 1.5 years of living in a global pandemic has fundamentally changed the way many of us operate as we were challenged to “do things differently”, to adapt, adopt, and compromise. What have we learned through these experiences? What social challenges were created or exacerbated by the pandemic? What are some opportunities that have emerged during the pandemic that are expected to continue? What does the “new normal” look like for you?
Through the HackIt event, student participants are expected to draw from their own experience and think and explore critically what problems exist and are deserving of a creative solution!
- How might education be delivered effectively in a digital-native era?
- How might we combat social isolation and identify new ways to maintain mental health?
- How might be build a more resilient food system?
- How might we reduce the digital divide?
