With only 36 hours to go till the kickoff of our #HackTheUni hackjam, preparations are well under way.
Prizes courtesy of our friends at RS Components
- We’ve have a selection of thought-provoking and exciting challenges for participants to engage with, from service departments all over the University.
- We’ve got mentors for the teams to provide them with background information on the challenges themselves
- We have technical staff on hand to help with the running of the hackjam
- We have prizes whose value total well over £1000 – courtesy of of our friends at RS Components – which include Arduino Kits, Raspberry Pi computers, Bare Conductive Touch boards and – incredibly – a 3D printer!
Ali Napier and Rob Jackson from DJCADMake and Professor Jon Rogers of DJCAD will be overseeing the 2-day event, from the welcome meet to the closing speeches and thank-yous.
We’re sure it’ll be a huge amount of fun, and look forward to seeing you there (and there’s still about 18 hours left to register at http://hacktheuni.eventbrite.com)
