FLINT Auckland Micro Hackathon

Join us on Wednesday 29 May as we come together for an engaging and fun-filled Micro Hackathon hosted by our FLINT Auckland team at AWS. You need no experience at using AI tools, nor do you need to be coder. We’ll be using a fun, intuitive platform called PartyRock with drag-and-drop modules

What is a Hackathon?

A hackathon is like a marathon for creating cool stuff with tech! You will work in teams, brainstorm ideas, write code, and build prototypes to solve problems or make something new.

What are you Hacking?

Your task is to design an AI application that makes learning personal. Think of it as creating a smart learning assistant that can figure out what each student is good at and what they struggle with, and then helps them improve by providing tailored help and activities. Your apps will aim to make learning as effective as getting help from a one-on-one tutor. This means every student could learn more effectively, just like they would with their own private teacher.

Expected Outcomes

At the end of the hackathon, you’ll present your project to a panel of judges. This is a great chance to share what you’ve built and get valuable feedback on your idea, its design, and how well it works. You’ll have the opportunity to win prizes and gain recognition. Plus, there might be chances to keep working on your project after the hackathon, either by yourself or with new friends and potential partners you meet at the event.

This is your chance to dive into new technologies, boost your skills in cutting-edge AI technology, and expand your professional network by connecting with mentors, industry experts, other participants, and potential employers or business partners.

We look forward to welcoming you!

TUANZ has put forward the following recommendations to Government:

  • Simplify and expedite visa application processes for skilled migrants in all tech and supporting sector roles.
  • Work to support and develop programmes that encourage more Māori, Pasifika and Wahine into tech education and roles.
  • Develop with industry and education institutions internships and digital apprenticeship schemes.
