Davidson College Hackathon 2017
The inaugural Davidson College Hackathon was held on Saturday, February 4, 2017. Approximately 40 Davidson College students competed in the 9-hour event. The challenge was to create a digital submission that could be used to communicate science to non-scientists. No prior experience was required to participate. Groups of up to four students started from scratch to create their challenge submission over the course of the day. The event ended with product presentations and awards in three categories: Overall, Coding, and Communication. This poster highlights the impressive work of the participants, whose products included games, websites, and more. Event information and feedback data will also be presented.
