You can say that we learned from our mistakes. In 2019, we tried to bring together all disciplines and throw open a set of challenges that they could solve. But we ended up having too much diversity to work with. So MITS Hackathon 2020 is out with a new avatar.
The first round of selection is based on problem statements that you are comfortable with. We won’t provide any statement for the first round. We believe you bring out the best in you when you are in your zone. So, crack your brains and bring the best problem + solution forward. The best teams will progress to #hackatmits.
Problem statements for #hackatmits are going to be proposed by industries themselves. They themselves will send subject experts to evaluate the progress.
Challenges will be limited to hardware and software tracks. Irrespective of the track, your progress to finals will depend on how well you meet the expectations of your industry evaluator. The problem statements may be for simple apps, Artificial Intelligence applications, Analytics, Internet of Things, etc.
The Game Is On!!!
At any point in #hackatmits, if you feel some other team is directly ripping off an existing solution, feel free to point it out. We will be opening an issue posting forum where it will be tracked. If proven, demerit points to the erring team. If the issue cannot be proven, demerit points awarded to the reporting team.
This year we are conducting a parallel track where school students push themselves to the limit and come up with their own solutions. TeenHack 2020 will be held as a colocated event of #hackatmits. The general domains for TeenHack 2020 are :
1. Solutions for Smart Home
2. Solutions for Smart Cities
3. Solutions for your own school
4. Solutions for empowering the next generation
Teams may choose specific problems from any of the domains above and start thinking of the solution. School SPOCs may send the selected problem statement, with the corresponding team details, to our mail address [email protected] on or before
22nd March 2020. Lego STEM Kit will be awarded for the school bagging the first prize.
