The Warren Centre Humanitarian Engineering Hub Hackathon Webinar


Event details


The Warren Centre Professor Ron Johnston Humanitarian Innovation Awards has been a highlight in the engineering student calendar since 2019, attracting fierce competition amongst university undergraduates throughout Australia. 
Unlike previous years, where students respond to a broad range of diverse engineering challenges in community development and post disaster reconstruction, the 2022 Hackathon was themed around responding to challenges faced in the wake of the Hunga Tonga volcano eruption in January 2022.
Challenges were set along five key categories: disaster relief, communication re-establishment, school disruptions, monitoring volcanic ash and gas in the air, as well as measuring and solving the drinking water and agriculture problems faced by the region. 
We invite you to hear from members of last year’s award-winning teams who will present their solutions and share their Hackathon experiences.
You will also hear from some of our Challenge Mentors from last year's Hackathon, who helped to create such an engaging event, and guide the teams along the path to creating winning engineering solutions.
This one-hour webinar will include the opportunity for you to ask questions and learn how you can be a part of this year’s Hackathon event.
