Ed Tech Student Wins 2nd Place and $25k in Hackathon
Adelphi Ed Tech’s very own Stan Bogdanov recently took home the $25,000 second place prize in NYC’s First Hospital ‘Hackathon’ organized by New York Presbyterian Hospital.
Second place ($25,000 prize): Team name: Bogney; Application name: “Intermed.” This two-man team aimed to address the isolation and anxiety many patients face while in the hospital by creating an app that allows patients to connect with other patients and “mentors” based on interests or condition, connect with friends and family through social networks and access tools that promote relaxation and meditation, such as calming music. Team members were Stanislav Bogdanov and John Kinney, both of Long Island, New York.
Stan has joined several hackathons as a way to learn new things and test his skills. He says, “Hackathons are a great way to involve the community and get some fresh ideas. I am looking forward to putting together Adelphi’s first hackathon in Spring 2015!”
