RoboHacks: a 24-hour Robotics-themed Hackathon

I founded RoboHacks, which was a 24-hour robotics-themed hackathon at McGill. I directed the first event, which took place from March 19-20th, 2016, and had 763 applications from across North America for 150 participant spots at the event.

I led a team of 20 organizers and 49 event volunteers. As a team, we raised over $24,000 in monetary funding for the project and completed our first year by winning Best Science and Technology Project in the province of Quebec.
