And yes, the competition is now extended to the Asia-Pacific region too!
With prizes worth S$5000, the competition enables young scientists and hackers to create open source innovations, that will impact millions of lives! Click here to read more about “What is a Biohack?“
In the qualifier round, participants need to submit an idea or a biohack (By April 15th, 23:59 SGT – Extended Deadline), in the form of a poster or an infographic (in A4 size), which will be put up on social media for online voting (1st-15th April) and also judged by a panel of experts.
Simultaneously, the teams can start validating their ideas or biohacks by performing experiments and creating a prototype or doing a proof-of-concept study. The finalists will have to submit a one-page proposal and a video of their biohack (upto 8 minutes) by 15th May. The winners of the Asia-Pacific Biohack Competition will be announced on 20th May! Apart from winning prizes worth S$5000, the winners will get an opportunity to pitch their idea to mentors and be groomed further!
So, what are you waiting for?! Take part in the most EXCITING competition of the year!
