There is a lot of talent in this region that we will continue to support and encourage through future hackathons. We look forward to being a partner in this heartland tech revolution.
One team developed a mobile chat room that enabled farmers to manage crops from seed to harvest and helped ensure efficient use of pesticides and fertilizers. Another team from nearby Moorhead State University designed an app that would monitor and track users’ medication dosages by communicating with a chip embedded in the cap of a pill bottle. No more forgetting to take your pills or accidentally taking an extra dose! Our hackathon judges recognized that these apps would improve processes, benefit users and potentially save lives.
