The Women's English Club of the Faculty of Languages and Translation held a program titled "Above the Sky" on Sunday the 28th of October from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
The purpose of the program was to publicize the role of women with respect to Vision 2030. In one of his seminal speeches, Crown Prince, HRH Mohammed bin Salman, noted that women play a key role in reshaping the Saudi Arabian economy as part of Vision 2030. In this program at KKU, the participants expressed their gratitude for HRH Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s confidence in making sure that women play an important part in the Kingdom’s national strategy. The women participating in the program are highly enthusiastic and are looking forward to reaping the benefits of a highly modernized economy which will provide many opportunities for women, youth, and the public-at-large.
Then, the 1st place winning team of the Hajj Hackathon “Turjuman” participated by presenting a video that summarizes the factors that helped them to win the Hajj Hackathon. As explained on the website TechRadar, "Hackathons are ways to pool human resources with the purpose of tackling difficult challenges and coming up with solutions by producing usable software. By having multiple teams with diverse backgrounds competing, the organizers get access to a range of high-quality potential solutions."
The Turjuman’s team prize-winning project was based on the installation of QR codes on all Hajj signage showing the translated versions of each sign in the user’s native language.
At the end of the program, the team conducted a question and answer session in which they addressed the details of the steps they took to win the Hajj Hackathon, the largest event of its kind in the Middle East.
