[Hackathon] Hack the Air

Air pollution is an increasingly difficult problem that cities around the world are facing. Have you ever wondered how you could help to reduce it? Come and join us at Hack The Air, a highly interactive, hands-on event at Science Gallery Dublin on 14.03.18 where you will have the opportunity to design innovative solutions to air pollution in cities alongside researchers from the area and Science Gallery Dublin staff. 

WHO SHOULD JOIN

We are looking for young people (aged between 15-25) with a passion for bringing ideas to reality. If you bring creativity and a curiosity to solve big problems with simple solutions, we’ll provide the materials, the space and the fun to bring it all together!  

WHAT TO EXPECT

Working in small teams, you will use a process of design thinking to generate new ideas aimed at reducing pedestrian exposure to air pollution. Using a variety of weird and wonderful materials to create prototypes, you’ll have the opportunity to see your ideas brought to life. Our friendly, knowledgeable facilitators and researchers from both University College Dublin and Trinity College Dublin will be there to guide you throughout the day.
