Port au Prince
The local SpaceApps Challenge in Haïti is hosted by the Ecole Supérieure d'Infotronique d'Haïti (ESIH) in coordination with the Civil Innovation Lab with the special participation of students from Catts Pressoir college school.
Teams from CIV's Hacking the Border, Relief 2.0, Socinfo, Educar and CiudadesVirtuales initiatives will be joining the SpaceApps Challenge in Haïti, both remotely through virtual participation and at ESIH.
We invite anyone interested to join us as we work on the projects throughout the weekend in English, Haitian Creole, French and Spanish.
You can collaborate remotely via Skype, Facebook, Twitter, e-mail or whatever is easier for you, register and join our projects at SpaceApps.com or contact us for more details.
The Ecole Supérieure d'Infotronique d'Haïti (ESIH) is an internationally accredited higher education institution offering quality programs in computer science, entrepreneurship and business management to Haitian youth. The University is conveniently located on top of a hill in the center of Port-au-Prince for easy access and good bandwidth from multiple internet providers, as well as a clear view of both the skies, the city below and the Sea!
Among ESIH's tech facilities you will find a Virtual Reality Lab, a Cisco Lab, a Mac Lab, a Microsoft Lab as well as a video editing center and team. But ESIH's biggest assets are its students, a group of motivated young individuals eager to innovate and share, supported by a proactive management team in tune with global trends and committed to push Haiti into the global scene with a positive, value-adding presence.
