We’re delighted to say that KPMG are sponsoring the event, which we are very grateful.
This year we’re inviting you to dredge the brainbank for environmental innovations and designs.
Engineer a food waste calculator bin or use air quality data to re-plan a carpark; build a beach-cleaning robot and test out your microplastic sieving-Thing; model a hydropower generator for high-rise buildings; design a recycling incentive scheme; evaluate satellite plant-growth images and water quality measurements to make savings on field treatments; recalculate Jersey’s optimal bus routes; or teach an algorithm to identify healthy seafood from sick fishies.
This event is open to everyone, whether or not you consider yourself a “techie”, all that’s needed is an open mind and enthusiasm for finding new or better solutions to problems related to the environment.
Our aim is to inspire and encourage experimentation with technology and – most importantly – for everyone present to learn and have fun.
We will provide:
· Near real-time air quality information from a range of sites around Jersey
· Liberty Bus boarding data and (TBC) bus telematics
· … other datasets on the way
If you are not participating this year, there are further opportunities to:
· Contribute data (crop record data, water monitoring, weather station, image databases etc.)
· Sponsor (cash or in-kind for prizes, give-aways, and catering)
· Design our verifiably awesome stickers, and T’s !
· Cook for us! Or provide drinks and snacks to sustain the teams as they race to final…
How much does it cost?
£10 to register – you’ll get it back (and more) in goodies and food at the event.
