The overall winner from the day, as voted for by a panel of judges, will win the opportunity to take their prototype to a full field trial with support from the Numbers That Matter team.
Entry is open to anyone; professional developers, activist hackers, design students, anthropologists, sociologists, geeks and social entrepreneurs are welcome, as is anyone who feels they can contribute to the day.
We’ll be making working prototypes of hardware and software on the day, so people with experience in these fields are important team members.
Design is a key aspect of usable devices and experiences – teams will need these skills to anticipate and plan meaningful devices.
We encourage collaboration between participants – if you don’t already have a team to work with, you can meet up with people at the start of the event. It’s easier to complete a hack if there’s a range of skills and people working together.
