Join Stemettes and Millennium Point online to take part in a STEMazing event with a focus on health & tech.
What is Stemettes Hack Midlands
This years virtual event is funded by the Millennium Point Charitable Trust and is spread across two days (18th-19th September), that will tap into your creativity and equip you with new skillsets. The event we’ll be focusing on health and technology and how we can improve the way we live for a better future for us and the planet.
What activities will you be taking part in?
During the event you will be split into teams to identify a health-related issue and design a product or business solution for it. This will test each individual and help deliver some STEMtastic solutions. Throughout the weekend, you’ll be able to interact with STEM role models and learn about health and technology through their knowledge and expertise. The role models will be there to inspire your approach to the new ideas and solutions you’ll be developing in your team.
At the end of the event each team will get the opportunity to present your new ideas to a panel of judges. There will be some exciting prizes awarded to the winning groups and each participant will receive a goodie bag.
