This week you have the opportunity to take part in the Net Zero Hackathon. The event challenges any students (undergrad, grad, or recently graduated) from the College of Business and Economics, and the College of Physical and Engineering Sciences to work together to develop tools to reduce energy consumption in the home.
The event, sponsored by Sandbox Software Solutions, will take place over the March 28th/29th weekend. Working in multidisciplinary teams of 4, students will be asked to develop applications that will encourage residents to reduce their energy consumption. So far there are over $3300 in cash and prizes to be won, with more prizes being added every day.
The hackathon begins with a knowledge exchange mixer on Wednesday, March 25th. Students from the Entrepreneurship Society at the University of Guelph will teach students in the College of Physical and Engineering Sciences about pitching. This will be followed by a presentation for the business students by the Society for Computing and Information Sciences.
