From Hacking to Habits - High School Students Make Big Changes In Just 24 Hours!

Between all the assignments, presentations and exam prep, it can be tough for students to squeeze in enough Zs.

Rather than groggily shuffle from class to class, a group of students from Harry Ainlay High School and Old Scona Academic created an app to help them get a solid eight hours.

Habit Creator is a game-enhanced habit tracker that helps users set, track and achieve personal goals. It was developed as part of HackED Beta — a 24-hour hackathon put on by the Computer Engineering Club of the University of Alberta.

HackED 2018 + Awesome Student Projects at DemoCamp #39

Last night at DemoCamp #39 some of the student teams that participated in HackED2018, hosted by the Computer Engineering Club at the University of Alberta, join us to show off their projects. This edition of the hackathon was bitter-sweet for us. So many students, from across programs and schools, are participating that the event outgrew our home at the Mercer Warehouse. Over the past five years, we loved hosting students as they stretched their imagination, built projects on the fly, and taught themselves a dizzying amount of new skills - just because they could.
