XdHacks Mini is an organization to probe young minds, encouraging them to solve puzzles and problems pertaining to STEM areas. XdHacks Mini Toronto is a chapter related to this broad organization. Our goals are to appeal to youth interested in medicine and its integration with Artificial Intelligence with a foundational base where they can apply their skills and expertise in coding and computer technology (“hacking”) in different scenarios to solve problems. Our events will range from networking events for students to connect with the professionals in various fields to workshops with raffle prizes! We want to challenge youth through engaging events and activities to innovate and create a blueprint for a better tomorrow! Stay tuned for more information about our event dates and other initiatives!
Our associated organization, YESci Ontario, was founded with the sole objective of promoting the underrepresented occupational sectors in the medical field. We want to reflect on these values in the unique form of a hackathon in the Toronto/GTA area! Our mission is to create a space where youth can learn about interdisciplinary studies and apply their knowledge to solve real-world problems. We stand by our statement “knowledge is vital to develop an informed perspective,” meaning that the more versed an individual becomes on a particular topic or skill, the more knowledgeable they will be. Thus, opening up countless doors to success in our contemporary society.
