Attention all imaginative problem solvers! All BSSC students are invited to attend the Hack for Humanity hackathon.
This two-day event will bring together a cross-section of the community to develop solutions for challenges presently facing the Emergency Services and Disaster Managers.
Welcoming anyone and everyone, this is your free opportunity to work with like-minded people on stuff that really matters. The Bendigo Inventors Awards website describes the hackathon this way:
“A hackathon is an event, typically lasting several days, in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming. This event will utilise data from… organisations involved in emergency response and disaster mitigation and management to promote invention in the software application field, and provide valuable opportunities for tech-preneurs to connect with each other and participate in the Bendigo Inventor Awards.”
Australian ingenuity has seen the invention of numerous vital appliances such as the surf lifesaving reel, the black box flight recorder, the ‘spray on skin’ to treat burns, and a car-locking system that will not operate if someone (think child or pet) is accidently left in the car.
Here is a chance to be part of a collaboration that just might change the future.
Hack for Humanity will be held during the school holidays—Monday 25 September & Tuesday 26 September at La Trobe University, Bendigo.
