School organizes hackathon for students to solve civic problems
Chennai school kids come together at hackathon to solve civic problems
School children from Chennai came together to apply their problem-solving skills to combat some of the issues by participating in the Sarvalokaa Hackathon 2019. Twenty teams worked on broad themes of waste, energy, water and sanitation, to arrive at solutions for problems within the domains, at a micro-level.
Reap Benefit and Chettinad Sarvalokaa Education jointly organised the hackathon where the students from different schools will prototype a solution to an urgent civic problem.
The events saw the students come up with creative ideas and develop the products using kits from Reap Benefit or design one from scratch.
The mentors directed the students towards a viable course of action to complete the challenge in time.
