Bonus: COVIDathon Pressure Cooker

Bonus: Pitch to the Pressure Cooker!
Dear hackers,   We are hoping that you are all in good health and making progress on developing tools for the current pandemic. We have seen many wonderful submissions already, keep them coming!    The online nature of the CoVIDathon means it can be difficult to gauge if your project is on par with what is needed and sometimes difficult to get the kind of feedback one would expect at a physical event. That’s why we are launching a bonus ‘Pressure Cooker Pitch’ round where projects can get some quick feedback from the mentors and judges, who can offer advice and help you achieve your vision.

To apply for the Pressure Cooker, simply fill in the submission form for your project on before the 20th of April. This is the same form that you would use to submit your final project. You will only need to answer the questions marked with ‘PRESSURE COOKER QUESTION’. After submission, you will still be able to update your submission for the final deadline on the 1st of June 2020.   


If you have any questions about the hackathon, please post on the discussion forum.
