Văn Khánh Quỳnh, a junior Fulbright student, has impressively won the championship at the GreenHack Challenge.

Currently majoring in Art & Media Studies and Human-centered Engineering at Fulbright, Quỳnh entered the competition to gain practical experience in product development and technology, thus, prepare her for new career opportunities in the future.

In the competition, Quỳnh had extraordinary teammates from Hong Kong, Australia, and the Philippines. She enthusiastically shared about the team formation, stating, “Everything came from being open to communication, making friends despite geographical differences.” In the future, Quỳnh and her teammates are determined to build a team from various parts of the world to implement their idea – “CommunIOTy.”

In the Greenhack Challenge, Quỳnh had extraordinary teammates from Hong Kong, Australia, and the Philippines.

Addressing the challenge of creating a technological innovation to cope with climate change, “CommunIOTy” was born after 48 hours of intense work. It is a platform that integrates IoT technology for monitoring and managing floods, providing early warnings and enhancing response efforts through real-time data. To develop this idea, Quỳnh applied a lot of knowledge acquired at school, particularly the Design Thinking model taught in one of the foundational courses: Design & System Thinking.

The team’s innovation secured the championship and earned them the opportunity to advance to the final round of the HK Techathon+, scheduled to take place in Hong Kong in January 2024.
