Global Hackathon 2021
Virtual Cultural Projects
In February-March 2021, the University of Exeter Global Opportunities
Team and Immersive Trails Academy collaborated on a virtual Global Hackathon aimed at equipping undergraduate students in Humanities, Social Sciences and Liberal Arts with actionable professional skills required to thrive in a global digital workspace. The programme was aimed at making students more independent by innovatively harnessing the power of the digital universe to impact livelihoods, enhance self-sufficiency and create employment opportunities. Participants learned innovative, tech-based ways of dealing with global challenges by working across national and cultural boundaries.
Through this virtual Global Hackathon, undergraduate students from the University of Exeter and India will have the opportunity to convert their theoretical learning into practical applications using digital means to create participatory immersive cultural experiences.
Here are the final projects curated by the students as a part of the Hackathon.
