EduHack 2021: international hackathon for the future of education

Mateusz Rybiński, the president of our Foundation, was nominated to be a judge in the international educational hackathon EduHack 2021: international hackathon for the future of education, which took place virtually on January 14-17 I 2021.

9 teams from 10 universities took part in the event:

  • University of Warsaw, Poland
  • Kozminski University, Poland
  • Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology, Warsaw
  • Poznań University of Technology, Poland
  • Military University of Technology, Poland
  • Charles University, Czech Republic
  • Masaryk University, Czech Republic
  • Universitat Bonn, Germany
  • Budapest Metropolitan University, Hungary
  • Eotvos Lorand University, Hungary

A few words about the hackathon from Mateusz:

I am pleased with the growing interest and awareness of the EdTech industry. Until recently, such events, organized precisely for innovation in education, were rare. I am also pleased with the great interest of students in this topic. I think that people who study or just graduated from college are the ones that can be great carriers in the EdTech industry in the future, due to the still fresh experiences from school and university.

Hackathon’s level itself was very high. Students were excellent at diagnosing problems that arise at universities. Most of the proposed solutions had commercial potential for further development. I am also glad that we managed to organize a hackathon on an international scale during the pandemic, thanks to which students from different universities could not only compete with each other, but also establish contacts and learn from each other.

Projects that took the top 3 places:
1st place - team Code Hussar, Poland, project “UniNetwork” - an application that allows students to access information and research clubs and student projects, both at their own and other universities.
2nd place - team HARDCODED, Poland, project “Student Flow” - an application that diversifies remote classes; helps with building engagement during classes.
3rd place - team ICQ, Czech Republic, project “KLIC” - a platform for lecturers (and potentially also business) that helps with getting to know better and prepare to work with students with various disabilities and special needs.

Congratulations to all participants and organizers (University of Warsaw and University of Warsaw Incubator).
