Virtual hackathons

A virtual Competition or Challenge session for your students

A virtual hackathon is an online model to crowdsource innovative ideas and solutions from a large and diverse set of student teams. It allows you to directly compare the ideas and outputs across multiple student teams.

With ProjectSet’s virtual hackathon platform, you can set-up a hackathon at less than a third of the time and cost of a traditional hackathon and yet reach 10x participants. Hackathons can focus on a range of themes ranging from socio-economic topics (e.g. climate change, diversity, etc. ) to entrepreneurship. For academic programmes, we recommend a single-stage structured hackathon set of multiple weeks and including workshops and a pitching session at the end of the program.

This is becoming an increasingly popular way to engage with a large and geographically dispersed student community.
