Hacking For Humanity: Hack for Health

Online hackathon

Be a part of this year's Hacking For Humanity: Hack for Health, a hackathon presented by Girls in Tech Australia to be held in October.

It’s been a big year of rapid change for both global and local healthcare. To keep the momentum going, this weekend is all about imagining how technology can continue to change Australia’s health systems and also support Australians as we move towards the other side of the pandemic.

Hack for Health aims to solve issues that will help us pave a better world - whether this is coming up with a mental health hub or creating an app for public health policy - hackers have the opportunity to choose from a broad spectrum of business problems to shape this vision.

Here's what will happen:

  • The problems will be pitched to you during the Pre-Hack, 16 October, 6pm, when you will also form teams of 5.

  • Following that, the teams of hackers will brainstorm, problem-solve and prototype for two days over a weekend, 24-25 October.

Gather your gang, have a weekend of innovation and celebrate diversity in the tech community through the Girls In Tech Hack for Humanity!
