Calling all Hackers!

Designers, Learners, Artists, Engineers, Enthusiasts, Experts, Students, Professionals…. Anyone… Calling everyone who's interested, to come and join us to experience, explore, learn and solve problems using digital tools like Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality at the Mixed Reality Lab, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, Oklahoma. This hackathon is focused on solving real world problems using digital tools, not on technical aspects such as coding. The Hackathon will be open to anyone, from the absolute beginner to the professional hacker, so you are not required to have any specialized skills apart from having a basic understanding of operating a computer.

Three workshops (September 5th, October 3rd and November 7th) will provide basic information on how to use these different digital tools. Mentors will also help individual teams with their solution, during the Hackathon. The Hackathon will feature multidisciplinary teams of five or more team members. These multidisciplinary teams will work together in solving the problem posed to them. The event is designed to run for two days, and at the end of the Hackathon, a panel of judges will determine the winning solution. Every participant will receive a gift for participating, and the winning team will received awards for their work.
