Pueblo Science and the Impact Centre invite you to take part in the inaugural Hackathon for Science Education. The event will bring together 50 innovative students with scientists, engineers and educators as mentors. The students and mentors will work for 22 hours (with an overnight break) to create kits that will teach aspects of robotics to high school students in low-resource communities around the world.
The event will provide a fun and engaging opportunity for University of Toronto alumni and students to become leaders, builders and innovators as well as to make an impact on education around the world. The kits developed during this hackathon will enable teachers to introduce hands-on science and engineering experiences into their classrooms using robotics as the backdrop and improve their students’ attitudes towards STEM learning, concept uptake and problem solving.
