Hackathon @ Siemens Energy

Following a panel event, a second event with Siemens Energy was hosted on 6th March. The virtual hack tasked 34 attendees to come up with a solution to a current sustainability issue. Each group had two 2-hour sessions to work on their idea, with some help from Siemens Energy volunteers. They presented their solutions at the end of the day and two winning groups were chosen awarded work experience spots at Siemens Energy.
