Eduhack is a hackathon series where learners of all ages come together to create innovative solutions over a period of 48 hours.

“The hackathon event gave students a front row seat into new ways of thinking to develop the ability to provide innovation solutions to real life problems. It’s weekend format is an excellent model for students to quickly to work on practically skills for the future of jobs such as cooperation, critical thinking and communication. This is only the beginning and I am looking forward to working with Educraftor to support the decentralization of higher education into new learning communities such as EDUHACKS. The future belongs to the curious and a person’s ability to overcome challenges and find opportunities will largely depend on a person’s ability to recognize and adapt to the changes that are already underway.”

“For highschool students Eduhack is an awesome opportunity to rethink the very space they occupy every week – school and education. It’s also an excellent way for them to familiarise themselves with the world of business, to create and to have fun with old and new friends in a relaxed atmosphere.

For us others, Eduhack is a cool hackathon with interesting cases, forerunner companies and top-notch mentoring. Highly recommended!”

– Veli-Pekka Virtanen, SHIFT Business Festival

“As a mentor, I loved the enthusiasm I sensed from the students. They worked well in groups and showed expertise rooted from their own experiences within the tasks they had tackled. From a brand perspective, this is a wealthy asset when working with young people — they have that juvenile, post-digital mindset that many companies only crave!

I also want to highlight the initiative of bringing hackathons to different industries, since Eduhack is a prime example. I see this very beneficial way of introducing students at all levels to new means of utilizing their profession and gaining top experiences. Thanks, Eduhack!”

  Eduhackissa tiimit työskentelevät kovan paineen alla, mutteivät suinkaan yksin. Kolmen päivän innovaatioprosessin toisena päivänä tiimit saavat tukea työpajoista. Tampereen Eduhackissa osallistujat eivät meinanneet mahtua työpajahuoneeseen, kun...

“Osallistuin syksyn 2017 Tampereen Eduhack tapahtumaan tuomarin roolissa ja yllätyin positiivisesti, miten hienoja ideoita nuoret olivat kehittäneet ja jalostaneet viikonlopun intensiivisen työskentelyn aikana. Erityisen ilahtunut olin kuitenkin siitä tunnelmasta, mikä tapahtumassa välittyi. Sekä nuoret että heidän opettajansakin olivat iloisen ja energisen oloisia vielä sunnuntaina, vaikka takana oli pitkä työskentelyviikonloppu. Nuorten innostus oli selkeästi tarttunut myös heitä tsemppaaviin opettajiin. Ja pakko myöntää, että kyllä se tarttui minuunkin. Eduhackin tiimi on tehnyt todella hienoa työtä tapahtuman järjestämisessä. Tällaista lisää!”
