Kicking off in September, the 2016 CampusLink Ultra-Hackathon was a free event open to students where they would compete and apply technology to solve multiple technological challenges. Students had the opportunity to use modern technologies such as virtual reality headsets, Arduino development kits, cloud computing services, Cisco Meraki and iBeacon.
The event challenged students in three main categories which included environment, health and education. Almost 500 students between the ages of 15 and 25 all participated in the competition over the course of two days .
