Innovation Hackathon with General Electric Ghana

IMG-20170810-WA0047We had an amazing innovation hackathon with General Electric Ghana Volunteers and children from the Nima Cluster of Schools. They where tasked to use big data to gather data on dumsor and suggest ways of using this data to solve dumsor. All the teams had brilliant ideas!! They all learnt to code for the first time. It was a fun session and the children did amazing presentations, websites and won amazing prizes. They were also sponsored by General Electric Ghana to have free coding classes at the academy. We ended the event with using the new drone technology provided by Align Media Consult a Soronko Solutions partner to capture video content at greater heights. Special thanks to General Electric Ghana, our amazing mentors and mentees and the incredible Soronko Academy team. Here is a link to a video on the workshop https://youtu.be/bQa82dHgL_o
