With a focus on teamwork, design thinking and prototyping, we want to look for innovative tech solutions for climate change. As a plus, each team will be paired with a female academic, so they can witness first-hand how to propose the tech-based solutions.

Teams will have multiple check ins with their assigned mentor over the coming weeks, ending in a Hackathon day on campus on the 21st June- 10:00-15:00.
