What participants say about Agtech Hackathon

Mitchell Colmean v1.jpg

“Hackathon provided a great place for me to learn about micro controller programming and sensing. I teamed up with Levno and was able to learn about different areas of design and product testing that I had not encountered before. Since Agtech Hackathon 2018 I am now further developing my idea with Levno”.

Mitchell Coleman - 2018 winner

“After winning the first AgTech Hackathon in 2017, I attended in 2018 with a group of students from Tai Wananga Tu Toa. They got to experience what the tech scene is about in Manawatu and abroad. Hackathon gave them an opportunity to be involved in solving real world problems”.
