Use the next generation cellular IoT capabilities to improve sustainability indoors and outdoors!

Come take part of a unique hackathon in partnership with Telus and their brand new, cutting edge, loT technology!

Telus is a Canadian national telecommunications company that provides internet access, healthcare, IPTV television. The IoT technology is a piece of hardware that connect to a cloud and another device that can be accessed elsewhere, and is levels above the Arduino’s capacity. You will learn about this cellular technology and how to work with the cloud to find additional methods that IoT can improve workplace efficiency, save operation costs, and provide sustainable solutions!

In just 18 hours, you’ll be able to come up with a demoable idea and project! The top winners will get an accelerated interview process for TELUS’s Graduate Technology Leadership Program and other prizes!
