Challenge set and teams (with representatives of each interest group) are given 48 hours to create a solution. Best team pitch will win a cash prize and the opportunity to further their idea through targeted networking opportunities and incubators. Bringing together farmers, software and web developers, agribusiness professionals, and academics from Charles Sturt University, sessions will be facilitated by Hackathons Australia.
The agrihack will finish with a pitch to our board of judges and supporters. Anyone is welcome to come along and see what ideas and solutions our teams come up with. The winning teams will take home a cash prize and will have the opportunity to develop their idea further. Pitches will commence at 2:00pm 2nd March @CSU Convention Centre.
Kids Ag Innovation Day is an annual event run in conjunction with agrihack to encourage the next generation of farmers to see their future in agriculture from a research and development perspective. The day will be held at CSU in Wagga, on February 28, 2018, and will involve a field tour, discussions with ag students, experiments and a coding session with Code Club Australia.
Spots are available for primary school-aged students. We want to encourage kids from regional areas that not only can they drive a tractor, they can create a program to drive the tractor for them!
