ANSTO's National Science Week Hackathon

  • -
  • -

Following a run of successful hackathons involving ANSTO and nandin startups, we're excited to be launching a hackathon for students in partnership with the Australian Museum as part of National Science Week

The hackathon is open to Australian secondary school students in Years 7-11 interested in science and technology.

First 20 teams to submit a complete registration form will receive a $100 incentive that can be used for their hack.

Official registrations open on 27 July and close on 3 August.

A hackathon is an immersive experience where people come together with diverse ideas and skills to rapidly design and build products that customers would actually use.

The Australian Museum has teamed up with the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) to run one of these sprint-like events for Australian secondary students as part of National Science Week. The theme of the Hackathon is, "How can we use our oceans to innovate for a changing climate", which perfectly lends itself to problem-solving and coming up with new and exciting ways to solve the issues that our oceans face today.

Besides working in teams to create solutions to big problems, students will have access to a group of mentors which they can liaise with via Zoom during the hackathon to get feedback and advice on their hack.
