The Education Hackathon is meant for teams from all over the world.
Each team has to be made up of 3/5 people between 18 and 35 years of age.
This is how it works.
PHASE 1: SUBSCRIPTION
The first phase begins on 15th February 2018 and from then on the teams will be able to subscribe using the form at the bottom of this page.
(If you don’t have a team click here and find your teammates!)
Subscriptions will be open until May 31st but the earlier you subscribe, the better: speed is important as you can see in phase 2
PHASE 2: ONLINE GAMES
The second phase begins on 30th March 2018 and then it will be time to show how great your team is!
You and your team will have to face some online challenges to reach a certain score: the faster you overcome all the challenges, the higher your score will be.
The second phase will end on May 31st 2018 and a ranking will be drawn up, assigning each team a score; 50% based on the speed in solving the online games and 50% according to the feedback of a jury. The jury will focus on the potential of the team, because even if you are not the fastest in solving the online games, your team can make the difference and the world deserves to know it!
PHASE 3: INNOLYMPICS EDUCATION HACKATHON
The 10 teams with the highest scores from phase two will take part in the live event in Rome, on 23rd and 24th June 2018.
During the final phase the 10 teams will face a challenge and will have 2 days to find the best solution with the support of some mentors.
At the end of the second day all the ideas will be shown and a jury will declare the winner.
COMPETITION OR COOPERATION?
WHAT CAN I WIN?
During the two days you can gain credits for offering valuable solutions to the challenges you have met and also for sharing your knowledge with the other teams.
These credits can be used, primarily with Cocoon Projects, which will support your team in developing your idea during the months following the event, but also with all the players who, during the 2 days of the event, will join the newborn ecosystem.
