In conjunction with the 50th anniversary of ASEAN. Singapore Polytechnic is collaborating with Industry Partners and Sponsors: Cisco, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Bosch for the inaugural ASEAN100 Hackathon: Connected Smart Cities.
We believe this platform gives our ASEAN students the opportunity to collaborate with their peers across ASEAN nationalities, diverse cultures, and collectively discover the potential solutions to problem statements identified. Student teams formed by organizers will devise a solution with computing technologies that are building blocks to a smart city. The benefits from participating in this ASEAN100 Hackathon is immense. Participants will embark on Learning Journeys to acquire the necessary computing and thinking skillsets to help them to excel in ASEAN100 Hackathon; forge new friendships across the ASEAN region; collaborate with each other with productivity tools; access to the infrastructure in a FabLab at Singapore Polytechnic to realise the prototype with digital fabrications.
ASEAN100 Hackathon Top 3 finalist teams will win tickets to attend AWS Public Sector Summit at Marina Bay Sands Convention Center on 04Oct17. The finalists will be pitching their technology based prototype to conference delegates for the coveted First, Second, and Third prizes.
