Thanks to this work I had the opportunity to dialogue and exchange ideas with students and mentors from abroad, which with their experience, we were able to successfully complete our assignment. [..] My team and I took part of the area related to public health, so owing to the organizers of the Hackathon our ideas may some day become a reality. I am very grateful for the possibility of participating in this event.

"At the beginning of the hackathon I was very nervous, I did not know what I had to do, or who I was going to be with, but as time went by These doubts were cleared, and I became part of an incredible team, with which we got along incredibly well and developed the idea in an excellent way. Time passed, and this incredible hackathon came to an end, my doubts and uncertainties were gone, but I gained enriching experiences and moments with excellent people."

"This was my first hackathon and I honestly I can say I do not regret it! It was a great experience which taught everyone to work with deadlines and as a team with people from all over the world. The Mentor Project was truly dedicated to help us with our projects and solve our problems. Not only did I get to meet so many cool people I gained personal knowledge that will definitely be important for the future."
