KuriusHacks: Christmas Edition is a 3-day virtual hackathon created by the Kurius team, focused on the theme of “Hunger and Food Security”. Our event will take place during the last few weeks of December – in the spirit of the holidays and social good.  Following a similar vein as our previous events, we want to empower and inspire Canadian students to solve problems by leveraging the power of technology.
