This past weekend saw The Reality of Global Climate Change Hackathon take place at CCAM with many excited teams participating and almost as many sponsors. Participants were challenged to create meaningful, interactive programs using cutting-edge climate data and two different virtual reality systems. Mentors were on-hand to assist with programming and technology, specifically pertaining to the VR systems made available through CCAM and their corporate sponsor Microsoft.
CS and Music were both well represented as was Computing and the Arts with Scott Petersen (CS Lecturer) present as an audio programming and technology mentor. Highlights included Max Model, a student in CPSC 035 (21st Century Computer Music), and his teammate Johan Todi winning the second place prize.
