Velocity Speed Hack

July 7, 2022 @ 4:00 pm 6:30 pm

Presented by the Velocity Campus Ambassador Team

Calling all problem solvers! Are you passionate about healthcare, climate change and education? Can you race against the clock to find solutions to these pressing problems?

Introducing the Velocity Speed Hack. Join us on Thursday, July 7th at 4:30-6:30PM in the South Campus Hall (SCH) Cafeteria and let your creative and entrepreneurial juices flow!

The Velocity Speed Hack is open to students from across the university, regardless of technical background. In this rapid version of a full-scale hackathon, participants will be put together in teams formed at the event and work together to ideate, research and brainstorm solutions to problems in the domains of healthcare, climate change and education all in the matter of a couple of hours. Teams will then prepare and present a 3-minute pitch discussing their problem and solution areas, and the winning team will be selected via a people’s choice vote.

This event is conceptualized around first-time hackers and resources will be provided to aid teams in structuring their solutions. Velocity Campus Ambassadors will also be present at the event to answer questions that may arise.
