LabZone

Spread over 5 days, it is a zone for all young people excited to develop projects and ideas that have a positive impact on Africa and the world.

The hackathon will take place from 22 to 27 July 2021. The last day will be for evaluation and the first day for presentation of teams and coaches.

During the TEGTV with its programming from June 15, it will be possible to learn how to use the tools to be used during this LabsZone.

Competition will be divided into different stages, where young people will be guided by coaches, allowing a high quality in the final product to be delivered.

The motto for the 2021 projects is 'The technological answer' in these areas:

CATASTROPHE, DISASTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT (INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPATION)

Catastrophes are situations that, although they occur infrequently, due to their dimensions, require healthcare and emergency personnel to always be prepared to deal with the situation quickly and efficiently.

For this theme we propose 5 challenges that will be announced on the first day of the hackathon.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT (INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPATION)

How do we take care of the space in which we live and the space in which others, other species and the planet live?

We want participants to identify local problems and propose technological solutions that could help solve these problems.

For this theme we will propose 5 challenges that will be unveiled on the first day.

AGRITECH (INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPATION)

The aim of this theme is to design a prototype for local farmers and producers to achieve maximum reduction or reuse in food production systems.

We want contestants to look at local needs and propose a model for small-scale farmers to increase their productivity and reduce food waste.

In this theme, we want makers to give free rein to their imagination and come up with automated solutions for local farmers.

The challenges proposed for this theme will be revealed on the first day of the hackathon.

Hackathons have become increasingly popular in recent years as a modern tool for innovation. It is a concept in which solutions for complex problems,products and services are developed in a short time.

  • The TEG CAMPUS proposes a series of challenges for the different themes presented in the Hackathon, with the aim that the contestants find innovative solutions that can be applied locally and internationally.
  • The hackathon is a first step to collaborate with the entrepreneurial ecosystem by promoting collaborative work and solving real problems. Contestants will have to use their soft skills, research skills and effective communication to propose a solution to the challenges posed.

The role of the hackathon in the innovation process

The word hackathon is a combination of the words “hack” and “marathon” where hack means experimental and creative problem solving with a playful approach and marathon means the duration of the event. The hackathon has its origins in software and hardware engineering, but the concept is now also successfully applied in other industries to develop innovative solutions.

A hackathon lasts between 2 and 5 days and is dedicated to a specific topic or challenge. Participants work in small groups in a unique environment that encourages creative thinking and leads to surprisingly innovative new concepts, ideas and prototypes. The outcome of the hackathon is a finished prototype for an innovative product, service or business model.
