Micro:bit Hackathon

When opportunity calls there lies no barriers!

Sarvoday Fusion contributed to changing lives of so many young children opening up hundreds of young minds to the world of STEM & Innovation at the end of Hack:Bit 2018

With the aim of spreading awareness of the BBC Micro:bit, Micro:bit SLUG organized a micro:bit hackathon. Held on the 6th and 7th of July 2018 at Trace Expert City, the HackBit Micro:bit hackathon saw teams from 11 universities and 14 schools taking part.

The HackBit hackathon was initially announced by Micro:bit SLUG and opened it for idea submissions in January 2018. The hackathon received around 80 submissions from both School and University teams. Following that, the deadline for submissions came to a close in April 2018 and the submissions were sent to the first panel of judges. These comprised of 3 international judges and 3 local judges.

Based on the decisions of the judges, the top 25 ideas were selected to move on to the final round. In addition, Micro:bit SLUG also partnered with Sarvodaya Fusion to hold the final round of the competition under the support and guidance of Microsoft.
