Booz Allen Hamilton―in collaboration with Intel—sponsored SASEhack, the first-ever hackathon of the National Conference of the Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE). The specialized hackathon invited students with design, engineering, and entrepreneurial interests to collaborate and create innovative solutions for real-world challenges. Teams used Intel Edison Board, Docker, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) platforms to create an Internet of Things concept application to improve health care for senior citizens living in residential settings (e.g., assisted living, their own housing, etc.). Participants successfully built out concept sensors for monitoring blood pressure, vital tracking, and fall detection. Read more about the winning concepts here: http://bit.ly/1NpSA13.

SASE’s National Conference was held at the Houston Technology Center, October 8-10. SASEhack provided an opportunity for leaders from Booz Allen and the local Houston, TX community to mentor participating students as they prepared to present their solutions to a panel of judges. Booz Allen’s partnership with SASE is part of the firm’s commitment to working alongside institutions and professional associations that reflect the interests and diversity of our staff, and help support Booz Allen’s passion for inclusion.
