Big Earth Water Hackathon
Announcements, In the News, Students
The Big Earth Water Hackathon was recently held on the Stanford campus and drew over 100 participants. Workshops were held on October 6th and 11 projects were presented at the Big Earth Water Hackathon Project Expo on November 30th.
ICME led this initiative with support from Tencent and their Chief Exploration Officer David Wallerstein. The projects submitted for judging allowed Stanford students the opportunity to tackle big earth water issues including waste water treatment systems, flood mapping, predicting sewer overflows, and proposing policy changes to provide clean water.
Congratulations to the grand prize team who presented Stanford Urban Risk Framework, a tool that projects averaged annualized losses and uncertainty associated with sea level rise and coastal flooding. And congratulations to all the other winners!
