The "Creative Tech for Social Impact Hackathon" is a hackathon event (for people aged 18+) that will take place online.

During the Zoom meeting on Monday 12th February, the participants will be introduced to the settings, rules and requirements of the hackathon, as well as get to know one another and form teams. They will then have a week to plan and develop their projects.

The Zoom meeting on Monday 19th February will be dedicated to project presentations and team reflections.

The development of the projects can involve any form of technology the teams would like to use (for example Data Science, Web Development, Virtual Reality).

A hackathon is a dynamic and collaborative gathering where participants come together to unleash their creativity and innovation by working on a project.

Whether it's crafting cutting-edge software applications, developing innovative hardware solutions, designing user-friendly interfaces or even exploring new realms of virtual reality, the possibilities are endless.

Throughout this event, you'll have the opportunity to dive into problem-solving, coding, and design to bring your ideas to life and create a compelling project that showcases your skills and ingenuity.

Get ready to create!
