DSC NUS presents Hack For Good, a student-run virtual hackathon which seeks to inspire students to learn and use technology for social causes. Our innovation challenge is unique in that we are posing real problem statements provided by NPOs in Singapore!
It will be happening online, from 7 and 14 March 2022. It is completely free to attend, and students from all institutions are welcome.
A physical finale event will be held for the top 9 teams on 19 March 2022, where they will present to a panel of judges.
1. raiSE SG
How should we build resilience among social enterprises to support them through these difficult times of COVID-19?
2. Habitat Singapore
What are some alternative ways we can continue to effectively engage the public about the need for decent housing worldwide amidst the pandemic?
3. Daughters of Tomorrow
How can we get employers to be open and hire women who have less social mobility and may not have access to livelihood opportunities?
Participating teams are expected to create technological prototypes as part of their solution to tackle their chosen statement and directly benefit the NPO backing each statement.
