De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Join the Harvey Hackathon

On the 13th of September, the Delft Harvey Texas Research Team organises the Harvey Hackathon. A major data-collection and problem-solving event led by Prof. dr. Bartel van der Walle that will take place at the Delft Science Center. Are you interested in learning how you can apply your knowledge to increase the understanding of disaster response at TU Delft? Join the event and register online!

Students with all backgrounds are invited to explore how they can make impact with their expertise. During the event participants will work by choice individually or in groups to gather, analyze or visualize data from the recent Harvey disaster. Prior knowledge or experience is not required. During the day, there is enough room to learn from experienced researchers and peers in your group. Moreover, during the ‘Breakout Sessions’ you have the opportunity to learn about what TU Delft is already doing in this field.

Why join?

This hack-a-thon is a fun, social and informal way for you to get more familiar with the research that is ongoing at TU Delft. Throughout the day there are many opportunities to not only gain insights from researchers at our university, but also to provide and share your own insights with them. Moreover, you can use the event to broaden your network and find graduation topics, internships, or a job!

Where and when?

The event will start at 9:00 and free coffee, tea, cookies and lunch will be provided! The event will end at 17:00 after which a free “after-hackathon-drink” is held where you can interact with many professionals to discuss your (group’s) findings! You don’t have to come all day! You can walk in whenever you want.  The event will take place in the Science Center in the Mekelzaal (1st floor).
