Recently, I was talking to a friend and we agreed that one of the reasons we love KTH is the closeness to the “real world”; the opportunity of interacting with companies, the vast range of startups you can collaborate with and then, the events to feed your interests in certain innovative projects.
One of such events has to be the Hackathons. During these events, great ideas have been birthed for the host companies and most people who participate, have found it challenging enough to spike some innovative ideas in their minds.
As KTH students, we are lucky enough to have some of these hackathons hosted right in campus! One of such examples is…
SEEDING IMPACT GOES MAD IN UGANDA
In this hackathon, one is expected to unlock the key challenges to scale access to Clean Water and Sanitation in Uganda. In other words, you are creating a solution that will affect lives positively and also, contribute to acheiving one of the seventeen sustainable development goals!
More so, the winning team will go directly to the final qualification round to travel with MAD to Uganda this summer!
I love when these events hold during the weekend. This means no classes, so everyone can participate! However, I recently just found out about this and felt it would be important to share. To this end, if you do not have plans tomorrow, come take a chance on participating in a hackathon that acheives something greater!
When: 8th of April 11am – 7pm
Where: Valhallavägen 79, 5th floor, 114 28 Stockholm
