Linko Education Hackathons



Linko Education Hackathons



In Linko Education Hackathons we use our pedagogical understanding to support individuals to reach their absolute best together. This is our strength and ultimate super power compared to other hackathons.




A hackathon is an innovation event, usually lasting from one to three days, during which the participants hack (i.e. create solutions to) challenges set by real life organisations and businesses. 

The hackathon participants create concept level solutions in small interdisciplinary teams. The concepts are pitched at the end of the event and the best ones are given a chance for further development.
