The main event of our BAW was a hackathon called Hack-N2P, where undergrad and grad students from differents majors including clinical and organizational psychology, neuropsychology, business and administration and engineering were put into teams and given the task of solving a problem related to work burn out. The teams included teams from each area of study. The results of this event where very gratifying because every team presented an elaborate and interesting plan to solve the problem they were given. The other event that took place during our BAW was a forum or conference about the relations between psychology, neuropsychology and economy. This conference was given by three people, an expert in economy and two experts in both neuropsychology and psychology as well as one mediator.

Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
We feel that our univeristy was benefited by how different majors and and areas of study got together to solve problems and discuss about the relation between our brain and our economical activity. More often then not, diferent only interact within their same area but getting them all together under one topic helped to achieve better solutions and connections.
