Do you have an idea on how to divert more garbage from the landfill? For those innovative, creative, inventor-types out there: the Zero Waste Hackathon will take place from March 1 – 4 with winners being announced at the Zero Waste Conference.
What is a hackathon? It is a challenge over a specified length of time where teams are given a problem to solve and have to design and create a solution! Whether this is a physical product, phone application or website, a ‘hack’ of an already existing object, a new way to reuse materials into something new, or designs and models of a larger idea, the possibilities are limitless on what you can do in this hackathon!
Sign up as an individual or with a team and receive $250 for supplies and materials for your project! To sign up for a team or to get more information, contact Ben by e-mail at [email protected] or call at 867 667 7269 ext 27
Teams will have access to YuKonstruct’s shop, tools support and other resources during open hours.
*YuKonstruct members should be aware that the shop may be busier than usual. Members are still welcome during normal hours.*
