The 4th edition of JSHacks hackathon takes place at TechHub Bucharest between 25-27th October, with more than 70 participants expected to take part. Organized by the Romanian JavaScript community with Modex as the main sponsor, this edition focuses on education, encouraging participants to develop innovative solutions to solve the problems education faces in Romania. 

Education has a broad spectrum of areas where it can be improved and innovated, so it’s up to you to change the future through education. JSHacks organizers have some ideas on where change might be needed: Digital literacy, Personalized learning, Alternatives to grading, Alternatives to traditional school, Robotics / Coding, Adaptive learning algorithms, Mobile learning, Game-based learning, Team learning. 

Solve the Modex challenge

This year, Modex is challenging one team to take on a special project called “Educational Portal”, which includes an online grade catalog, a portal for parents and professors, homework, schedule and help for students. The team which develops the best solution and solves this challenge will benefit from all Modex infrastructure and blockchain DB, as well as future mentorship and incubation at Modex HQ to develop this into a fully-fledged startup.
