Students develop solutions for real-life issues in hackathon finals
25 Sep 2019
A team from SP has emerged as the winner for the respective category in The Build on, Singapore 2019 Hackathon. The event which was jointly organised by Amazon Web Services, the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Government Technology Agency, drew 51 entries from students of the Institute of Technical Education (ITE), junior colleges (JCs), polytechnics and universities. The winning concept from Team SP takes the form of a computer app and requires users to carry out various quests to improve their skill sets, for which they are matched with potential employers for paid part-time jobs. The concept was inspired by one of its members who is a foreign student holding down multiple jobs to pay her tuition fees.
