Winners emerge at Oracle Academy 2018 Students’ Hackathon

It was an intense and exciting atmosphere, recently, at Grange School, Ikeja, Lagos, where no less than 100 primary and secondary school students in Lagos State competed for top prizes in Oracle Academy’s students’ Hackathon 2.0.

The participants, who were randomly grouped in fours at both primary and secondary levels, were charged with addressing sustainable development goals (SDGs) by creating animations, databases and presentations, using Greenfoot, Alice or Oracle SQL software.

According to Dele Tejuoso, founder of WifiCombat Academy, a co-organiser of the event, this second edition was held to gauge the technology competencies of the students, as well as increase awareness on societal issues, whilst helping to re-shape the students’ perceptions about themselves.
