Tangible excitement best describes the mood here at NEARiX in anticipation of Hackfest 2016. Now in their 3rd annual year, the multi-island events (taking place on both St. Croix and St. Thomas UVI campuses) have become synonymous throughout the territory with education, creativity and foresight.
Open to all university students, the 2016 events (beginning September 9th on St. Croix) provide opportunity for both multi-discipline collaboration and the exciting chance for immediate realization of ideas and prototypes produced during the hacks. This year the theme of Health and Wellness takes center stage, addressing issues across both university and island life.
Whether participating in the Hackfest itself or spectating from an immediate distance, a day of intellectual synergy is certain to be had by all. NEARiX is proud to once again work hand-in-hand with UVI as event sponsor and immeasurably privileged for the continued opportunity to both shape and witness educational creativity first-hand.
Best of luck to all participants!
