WISE CDT Students undertake Hackathon challenge at residential summer school

In groups of four, students intensively ‘hacked’ a solution to a water problem industry; teams selected a problem to address and generated innovative yet practical ideas. Entries were judged by a range of industrial representatives, including RSKW Ltd and academics from Cornel, Exeter, Bristol, Bath and Cardiff Universities.

Other student activities during the week included a visit to a waste water treatment works, a boat trip round Poole harbour and an awards dinner, celebrating student achievements over the course of the taught postgraduate school.
