DevLab Hackathon

DevLab Hackathon

Fri 03 Mar 2017 18:00 - Sun 05 Mar 2017 22:00




Join Enactus Edinburgh as we bring together engineers, entrepreneurs, and academics in the University of Edinburgh's first sustainable development hackathon! Develop products that tackle some of society's greatest challenges with an array of well-versed mentors at your disposal.


This event will have students from the University of Edinburgh collaborate to engineer a product addressing an issue set out in the sustainable development goals in the space of 48 hours. Teams of four spend the two days brainstorming a solution, developing a business plan, and producing a prototype. On the last evening they present their work and are judged on its potential impact, economic feasibility, and sustainability.


DevLab offers an immense and invaluable opportunity where students will benefit from mentorship with experienced professors, workshops teaching industry skills, and networking with industry representatives.


You will be given 7 FREE MEALS during your weekend to fuel your productivity, and AMAZING PRIZES which include the opportunity for the winners to implement their product, with funding and support from Enactus Edinburgh!


Due to the nature of this challenge, STEM students are encouraged to enter, though students of all disciplines are welcome. To register for this event a ticket must be purchased.
