NYU Hackathon focuses on education

Students gathered at the annual “Create a Better NYU Hackathon” to pitch ideas for the better use of technology at NYU. The attendees showcased their ideas to improve the educational services provided by the university.

NYU’s Student Technology and Research Committee hosted the event at the Kimmel Center Market Place from Nov. 21 to 22. Students and faculty from various schools and communities formed groups based on similar interests to present at the event.

SPS graduate student Sumit Gupta said this event was a great opportunity for students like himself to be involved in the improvement of the NYU community and its environment.
