ABOUT

NEXUS is a two-day hackathon that promotes innovative problem-solving techniques in many areas of life. We want to connect high school students so they may utilize design thinking tools and methodologies to tackle real-world challenges.

In English

A student-lead hackathon organiser Junction from Aalto-university is for the first time ever organising a hackathon completely for high schoolers. The event spans over two days, during which the participants compete against each other by solving challenges brought by real companies.

Gather a team, or come by yourself ja spend two days working on interesting projects, meeting new people and hearing more about upcoming studies at university! The overall best project will win a grand prize of 1000€, with partnering companies also giving out some rewards. Aside from the challenges, you will have a chance to hear more about the study opportunities at Aalto, and meet students from different faculties. You will also get to know people working at Slush and Aaltoes for example.

The event is organised 12-13 of September at Maria01 in Kamppi (Lapinlahdenkatu 16). Event days last from 9:00 until 21:00. All you need to bring is your laptop. Welcome!

Suomeksi

Aalto-yliopistosta lähtöisin oleva Junction järjestää ensimmäistä kertaa hackathonin lukiolaisille. Hackathon on kahden päivän mittainen tapahtuma, jossa osallistujat kilpailevat ratkomalla yritysten tarjoamia haasteita.

Kerää siis tiimi ja tule kahdeksi päiväksi tekemään mielenkiintoisia projekteja, tapaamaan uusia ihmisiä sekä kuulemaan lisää tulevista korkeakouluopinnoista! Voittajille on luvassa 1000€ pääpalkinto sekä muita partnereiden tarjoamia palkintoja. Haasteiden lisäksi kuulette myös Aalto-yliopiston erilaisista opintomahdollisuuksista suoraan opiskelijoilta sekä muusta start-up ekosysteemin toiminnasta, esimerkkinä Slush ja Aaltoes.  

Tapahtuma järjestetään 12-13 syyskuuta Maria01 -tiloissa Kampissa (Lapinlahdenkatu 16), tapahtumapäivien kesto on noin klo 9:00-21:00 maanantaina ja tiistaina. Mukaan tarvitsee vain oman tietokoneen.
