Description

Hello, NeuroTechHa!

We are thrilled to present to you NeuroTechHa's first Hackathon! Join us for a weekend of programming, networking, and all things fun at the intersection of neuroscience and technology. The goal of the hackathon is to bring together people with different backgrounds to further develop the neurotech ecosystem in Hamilton. We encourage EVERYONE to participate, even if you do not have a programming background. Believe us, everyone brings something new and valuable to the table. If you are interested in joining an existing team, or proposing a project, please do so in our CrowdForge sparkboard. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send us an email at ha@neurotechx.com


Projects and available tech

Even though participants are encouraged to bring their own projects, our sponsors will also present their own challenges. You will have access to different electroencephalography (EEG) consumer headsets: Interaxon's Muse, OpenBCI's Ganglion Board, and NeuroSky's Mindwave Mobile. If there is any specific equipment you'd like us to provide, please let us know! Join the NeuroTechX Slack (specifically, the _hamilton channel) for more information.
