About this event

NexTech Hack is a groundbreaking hackathon hosted by the Google Developer Student Club (GDSC) at the University of Ibadan. It is a premier event designed to bridge the gap between technical skills and practical problem-solving, while fostering innovation and collaboration among students in the South-West region of Nigeria. 

NexTech Hack was conceptualized with a clear purpose in mind: to leverage technology for local impact. Recognizing the unique challenges faced by communities in the South-West region, NexTech Hack aims to empower students to apply their technical expertise to address these challenges head-on. The event serves as a platform for students to develop innovative solutions that tackle real-world problems and drive positive change within their communities.

NexTech Hack is structured into two stages:

  1. Online Preliminary Round: Participants will compete in an online hackathon where they will have the opportunity to collaborate, brainstorm, and develop their projects remotely.

Mentors and technical experts will be available to provide guidance and support throughout the online phase.
  2. Final Stage: Selected teams from the preliminary round will advance to the final stage of NexTech Hack, where they will showcase their projects in front of a panel of esteemed judges. The final stage will be held in a dynamic and interactive environment, providing participants with the opportunity to present their solutions, receive feedback, and compete for exciting prizes and recognition.
