Hackathon – an ideal event for students to connect with companies, expand their networking opportunities, showcase their professional skills, teamwork, and enjoy a productive time.

Sprout USN organized a three-day hackathon, “Horten Hack Fest,” as part of the Horten Tech Festival 2023, with the support of Kongsberg Gruppen. Over 48 hours, participating teams were tasked with developing an AR App. The grand prize amounted to 25,000 NOK. Students from various USN campuses participated in the hackathon.

Congratulations to the winning team:

Samuel Efrem Gebrehiwet (USN Vestford, Cyber Security)
Anthony Arthur Andreassen (USN Porsgrunn, Electrical Engineering, Informatics, and Automation)
Henrik Heiner (USN Vestfold, Engineering, Data Engineering – Cybersecurity)
Mathias Kolberg (USN Vestfold, Electronic System Design)

We express our gratitude to our sponsors: Kongsberg Gruppen, Electronic Coast Norway, USN, as well as Karl Martins Obote, Amrit Sreenivas, and Sunniva Sola Bøyesen, for their assistance in organizing and conducting the hackathon.
