LPSC Hackathon

Hackathon LPSC

A Hackathon is a gathering of programmers who collaboratively code to solve a specific problem set in an extreme manner over a short period of time. Hackathons lasts for at least a few days - or over a weekend - and generally no longer than a week. While working on a particular project, the idea is for each developer to have the ability and freedom to work on whatever he/she wants. Here the target audience is selected to be students of 8th and 9th standards. The Hackathon is primarily to train the students in aspects of programming using the popular Arduino and Raspberry Pi boards so as to give them a feel of control applications related to robotics, automation and internet of things. It is a residential program of 4 day consisting of three day training by eminent faculties and 1 day problem solving/project work.LPSC reserves all rights to modify the program.
