KSU Hackathon

Rachael Le Goubin

Team Roame explains the prototype of its design at the finalist presentations of the Fashion/Tech Hackathon event hosted in Rockwell Hall on Sunday, Feb. 1, 2015. Roame won first place and a $1,500 award with the design of a backpack that also acts as a hands-free navigational device. The 36-hour event challenged students to combine fashion with technology using resources such as the textile lab available in Rockwell Hall as well as their imaginations.
