These hackathons are developed to help students participate in the global competitions by generating new ideas or projects. The events do not require a high level of technical skill and are open to students with both engineering and liberal arts backgrounds. During these “hackathons for ideas,” all participants will have the opportunity to form their own team. If they do not have one in advance, we will help with partnering. Participants will develop ideas for cybersecurity projects on the topics of connected health, IoT or personal security. The best teams from each hackathon will receive valuable prizes and will have an opportunity to skip the pre-selection stage of the contest.
