In this panel discussion, two Solution Challenge mentors Leona, Program Manager in the Strategy & Operations department at Google, and Miri, Data Engineer at Playtika and head of the GDSC Mentorship program, will share how to brainstorm creative ideas and prototype these into a final product, in the form of a mobile app that can be released to users. Following that, you will hear a real-world example from the top 10 Solution Challenge finalist team SimplAR from TUM who successfully applied those tips to create a Google-Cloud-powered app that solves for the Quality Education UN Sustainable Development Goal

Of course, you'll have the chance to ask all your questions! At last, we have prepared something personalized for you:
