9 Teams — 9 Amazing Projects

The teams has several major deliverables over a 48-hour period: Firstly they needed to form their team, pick a challenge, design and build their app/product/solution to the internationally-set challenges, prepare for a presentation in front of judges, and finally a 30-second video clip summarising their projects. And somewhere they needed to find time to sleep!
