Social Innovation Hackathon
“Hack for a cause”
This year’s I School Hackathon is sponsored by the Peace Corps, and will tackle real-world problems faced by Peace Corps projects around the world.
Thinkers and innovators, students and professionals alike. Anyone with a desire to solve real-world problems is welcome to compete and make a difference. Technical experience is not required. Come as a team, or form one at the event. Teams should be about 3–4 people each.
On Friday evening, we’ll present a set of detailed problem statements from Peace Corps projects around the world. After 20 hours of hacking, teams will present their solutions, and a panel of judges will award $2000 in prizes to the best projects.
Bring your skills and passion, and we’ll provide the food (and the caffeine)!
Friday, November 15, 6:00 pm – Saturday, November 16, 5:00 pm.
