Mosque Tech Challenge 2018

[Event has ended]
Sat, 2 June 2018, to 03 June | Registration at 1:30pm | English


Fees: Free (Open to all ages, read below for more details).

Innamal a'malu binniyat - “Actions are dependent upon their Intentions”

Ideas form from all places, why not we nurture ideas from the the most pure and sacred place of our community, that is the Mosque.

Mosque Tech Challenge started off as a 24hr+ Hackathon Competition that aims to provide a platform to seek, implement and share the best and coolest ideas with technology towards the benefit of the community. 

This year, in its fourth year running, we plan on tackling the global concern of climate change and explore how technology can improve the environment around us. The hackathon, themed, “Climate Change” aims to build communities and bring people all over closer together. Whether it's in the format of a Mobile App, a Web App or a Hardware implementation - or a combination - we want to see how you innovate. It could be anywhere as big as a solar panel solution to as small as a redesign of a recycling bin, but we want it to be cool (: 

The uniqueness of this year's challenge is the avenue for all ages to participate. Wait for it!
There will be not one, not two, but three ongoing challenges that would be concurrently carried out, in the form of

1. A Makerthon. A workshop styled event, carried out by Young Muslim Scientist, will be an avenue for kids aged 7 to 12 years old.

2. An Ideathon. A guided competition styled event, carried out by Ground-Up Initiative Labs for Development (GUILD) for the benefit of young adults aged 12 to 16 years old to tinker around.

3. Aaaand a Hackathon! A 24hr+ competition for anyone aged 16 and above. Form a team of max 4 people, and compete!

On top of it, we will be planning workshops leading up to the hackathon to introduce participants to some tools, and hence in the process of thinking about ideas, build our capacity for the skills and knowledge required - for the future. These workshops will be open to those who are not taking part too and will be free. Don't miss it!
