Our first Cross-Atlantic Hackathon brought to you by teams from Germany & Canada
Are you interested in robotics?
Robots are not just for sci-fi movies anymore; we interact with them on a daily basis.
Automated cars, vacuum cleaners, delivery, warehouse management, and surgery, just to mention a few applications!
But robots are not just limited to “engineering”; we can create fantastic art with them too!
Would you like to combine art with robots?
Our hackathon will bring you on a journey into robotics, where you will learn more about them and create your own robot art!
Currently, only 20% of roboticists are women (according to Robotics and Automation Society), but we know that girls love robots too! This hackathon will be an international event involving young women across the Atlantic Ocean, bridging Germany and Canada, thanks to their passion for robotics.
You will work as a part of a team to develop your artistic robotic application (and we can’t wait to see the outcome!) on a three days journey between tutorials, coding, application development, and talks from robotics researchers.
The RoboArt Hackathon starts on 4 Nov and ends on 6 Nov, on these days hacking and activities will be from 9:00 EST (15:00 CET) to 13:00 EST (19:00 CET). More infos on the Schedule here.
Jump on board now and unleash your passion and creativity!
