SmartAg4.0 Sets Sights on Dairy Industry

Participants and judges from the SmartAg4.0 2017 event pose together before the final round of judging.

Did you know that CFAES holds its own annual hackathon inviting students to generate ideas to revolutionize agriculture?  The event is open to undergraduate and graduate students from throughout the university.  They form a team and then have 24 hours to formulate and pitch their idea to a panel of academic and agriculture industry sponsors.  Last year's winning team came up with an idea for a community garden app for subscribers.  This year, participants will focus their idea on one of four topics related to the dairy industry: sustainable nutrition, sensors and smart packaging, the Internet of Things, and blockchain.  Read more about this exciting event.
