Hello to all curious minds!

We are happy to welcome you to the third season of HackBenchers. It is the time of the quarter to learn and build something exciting. HackBenchers #3 brings you another interesting topic to work on: Evolution.

Evolution: A natural selection process

The age of the Earth is about 4.54 billion years. The earliest evidence of life on Earth dates to at least 3.5 billion years ago. In the beginning, all living beings on Earth were single-celled organisms. After a billion year, multicellular organisms evolved and increased the diversity of life on Earth. The evolution does not explain the origin of life but it does explain how lifeforms rapidly evolved into the complex ecosystem that we see today.

This HackBenchers revolves around the past of the evolution of all living beings. There are various questions about the past of living beings that must be addressed. For example, several million years ago:

  • What were we?
  • What were our form and structure?
  • How did we look?
  • What did we eat?
  • How did we survive?
  • What was our behavioral trait?

Isn't it interesting to walk through the past and understand this huge transformation?

Here is a video by Kurzgesagt: In a nutshell that explains what, why, and how of the evolution:

HackBenchers #3 absolutely helps you to find the story about our evolution. If you are eager to know about how lifeforms evolved on Earth, then this season of HackBenchers is exclusively for you.

It sure is going to be interesting and challenging. In case you need any help throughout the project, we are here to guide you. Scroll down to view problem statements and understand the expectations of this project.

Learning scope with HackBenchers #3

  • Understanding the theory of evolution
  • Learning and analyzing the evolution of all the living beings through centuries and several million years
  • Final outcome of this event is to evaluate a web or mobile application. Therefore, you can learn the skill of the application development.
  • Code optimization
  • Incorporating the analyzed data in the application
  • Designing and building a new application
