CS student ‘turns up the heat’ in latest data science hackathon

Friday, May 17, 2024

Last week, students at the University of Waterloo were invited to participate in the GOODHack24 challenge. This event was held at Communitech in downtown Kitchener and was co-hosted by the City of Kitchener, Go Open Data (GOOD) and GreenHouse, a social incubator at United College.

This hackathon challenge offered a space for students to brainstorm, explore and develop innovative solutions at the intersection of open data, technology and local sustainable resources to support affected communities experiencing heat inequity.  

Amin Mojtahed, an undergraduate student at the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science, was part of the winning team: Planet Profit. They developed a software program that encourages residents to take part in opportunities that combine community building and climate action initiatives.
