uwEnergyHacks is different than your regular, run-of-the-mill hackathon. This hackathon is focused solely around a series of energy-related problems that exist in our world today, how will you solve them?
uwEnergyHacks aims to be an open hackathon allowing both non-technical and technical hackers to collaborate together in creating the best solutions.
1) Hackers will create up to 4 person teams ideally with a wide variety of talent.
2) The problem questions for the hackathon will be announced and for the next 24 hours you and your team will attempt to solve one or more of them.
3) At the end of the hacking period, you will get a chance to demo and pitch what you have created and be judged. Prizes for teams that create the best solutions will then be handed out.
