Engineers Without Borders Monash Presents:
EWB Ideathon 2020

Research, Ideate, Validate and Present your solutions towards

Engineering Better Healthcare in Cambodia

EWB Monash’s Ideathon is a hackathon-style event where participants must engineer an appropriate solution to a design proposal addressing healthcare in Cambodia. Not only will this event teach rapid generation of appropriate solutions, but it will be jam packed with workshops, and give you the opportunity to interact with mentors and learn highly valued professional skills such as pitching, proposal development and resiliency under deadlines.
This year, our Ideathon case study will be focused around the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) sustainable design goal of health and wellbeing. We will be providing all the resources needed to tackle the case studies on the day and workshops to help understand and empathise.
The event will be held fully online from Saturday 26th September to Sunday 27th September and will be easily accessible over Zoom. So bring your friends and sign up as a group, or sign up as an individual and join a group of highly capable team mates!
Participating in Ideathon will go towards your Continuous Professional Development (CPD)  hours!

Race to create the best human centred solution

During the event, we will go through the 4 stages of Ideathon:

  1. Research
    Empathise with the people. Learn what they are facing, their challenges and what can be improved in the face of a global pandemic.
  2. Ideate
    Armed with the understanding of the situation, you will create hundreds of unique solutions to address the challenges.
  3. Validate
    Eliminate difficult to implement solutions, develop and flesh out validated solutions into a product.
  4. Present
    Showcase your ideas and solutions with a short 3 minute presentation. Create the most innovative product and win prizes!
