SUMMER HACKATHON IN KOREA. MEDIALABBERS LAURA MESKANEN-KUNDU AND MAYA PILLAI SUCCESFULLY TO SEOUL FINAL, OCTOBER 2017
Art Center Nabi http://www.nabi.or.kr/english/main/main.nab contacted us last spring and asked our students to participate the event. Also media labs from MIT and Amsterdam got invitations. They have heard about our students’ great exhibition show in Seoul from last year.
The organizers wrote:
‘The Global Hackathon of Neotopia in conjunction with an exhibition and conference will be the fruitful collaboration and understanding among scientists, engineers, designers, artists, architects. It will engage with our current issues towards a more humane society such as community empowerment, sense of belonging, civic technology, big data, digital democracy, sociopolitical minorities, sustainability, and communication.’
Laura’s and Maya’s developing concept is to make something that would help and encourage young girls to dive into the world of programming & engineering.
Congrats Laura and Maya!
