We’re starting at 9am, and we only have until 2:30pm. For this reason it’s important you show up at or around 9am, or you’ll just run out of time. This is a mini-hackathon after all.

James will be judging, and will deal out our modest selection of prizes. Projects will be handed in at 14:00, allowing judging to happen fairly promptly. The judging system is going to be very simple, there are four identical prizes, and James will just select the four projects he found the most impressive.

You can get a ticket from Eventbrite! Please ensure that you register prior to get a ticket in time!

Judging Criteria

  • What we're looking for
    You want to design a drone to detect fires. You could do the first option by designing a drone with flight powered by being attached to a seagull, or you could do the second option by equipping it with a flamethrower so it finds fires 100% of the time.
