Description

IDEA HACKS IS BACK! The IDEAS Hub's premier student-led hackathon for 11 - 18 year olds is here for you to take your first steps into tech superstardom. Happening from the 11 - 12 November 2017, this incomparable learning experience will feature the best 101s, quality mentors, the tastiest noms and an unforgettable experience for all. Last year, we saw A!-powered study aids, hardware-based note-taking systems and a helmet that automatically detects concussions. This year, we've put together a challenge so exciting, we're pretty sure you'll be completely blown away by it!

HOWEVER, this year, we will only release the challenge ON THE DAY of the competition to even the playing field.

So what are you waiting for?

Please note that registration closes on the 18th of October 2017.
