CSIRO Solar Hackathon 2016

  • Newcastle, Australia (map)

How does $10,000* in cash prizes sound? What about the chance to work with the brightest minds in Australia by creating your own solar start-up in less than 24 hours?

Join CSIRO for our first ever Solar Hackathon on Friday 8 April and Saturday 9 April 2016 at the CSIRO Energy Centre Newcastle, home to solar innovation and research.

Why you should come

You will have the opportunity to team up with cutting-edge developers, creative designers and strategic business minds to help create innovative solutions to spread the solar message! You don't have to be a solar expert to join as you will have access to CSIRO mentors and experts to help bring your idea to life.

At CSIRO’s Solar Hackathon you will:

  1. Get to know people with similar skills and passions
  2. Network with solar software, finance and design leaders
  3. Have fun doing what you love while competing for $10,000 in cash prizes
  4. Receive your very own Hack the Sun t-shirt and mug

What is a hackathon?

Haven't heard of a Hackathon? Now's the time to jump on board. The CSIRO Solar Hackathon will present a challenge and you, together with some team mates, come up with a solution. You present your idea to a team of judges who then award up to $10,000 for the winning solutions. It's that easy (and fun!)
