Celebrating National Science and Technology Week, WEtech Alliance and Hackforge are collaborating on HackWE 3.0, a hackathon focused on open data from the sciences. We’re looking for teams of tech students or professionals to compete, and science people to help competitors interpret the data and solve useful problems with it.
Artists and designers are also welcome to form or join a team – teams with cool visualizations will have a leg up.
Student teams are eligible for prizes. Professional teams are competing for bragging rights.
Participating teams will come together for the “draft” and a series of talks on science and technology on Friday, October 17th. The teams will present their completed projects on Sunday, October 26th.
This Hackathon is in partnership with St. Clair College, the University of Windsor, and Open Data Windsor Essex.
