Oracle Academy in Brazil was pleased to recently support the Centro Paula Souza (CPS) Academic Hackathon Final event on November 5, 2019. This exciting event was attended by 10 finalist teams, among the 128 teams from 17 CPS schools that participated in the competition.
The 10 teams presented their projects, which were evaluated by jury members consisting of 10 evaluators and attended by two Oracle collaborators: Patricia Teixeira (Oracle Academy) and Patricia Taniguchi (LAD Logistics Manager).
The hackathon's goal was to create an education application. The Organic team was the winner of the competition, led by Professor Prof. Claudio José Silva from ETEC Machado de Assis, with the students Gabriel Victor dos Santos, Daniel Feliciano, Elisandra Trindade, Flavio Simplicio, and Vinicius Silva. This innovative team proposed an app designed to facilitate the learning of the Organic Chemistry discipline using Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality to identify chemistry’s glassware on classes.
Following the presentations, attendees had the opportunity to watch a Talk Show track, one of them led by Patricia Teixeira, which showed the impact that the Oracle Academy educational program has been having on students and teachers across the country.
CPS is an Institutional member of Oracle Academy, and students are learning about Java and database using Oracle Academy curriculum and classroom resources. This knowledge certainly will help the students of the teams develop their applications.
The Oracle Academy program is pleased to continuously support initiatives like this hackathon, as we believe they are a way to change students’ lives through innovation and creativity.
