When Nisha Pathak applied to participate in the Toyota + Net Impact Mobility Challenge this fall, she didn’t expect much. The Mobility Challenge was Pathak’s first hackathon, so she was surprised and delighted to come in first place in the one-day contest.

The hackathon challenged participants to come up with creative solutions for a wide variety of mobility and transportation problems, to promote equity and opportunity for some of society’s most vulnerable populations.

A team of School of Information master’s students was victorious in the 2016 CMYK Designathon, an annual one-day design competion for UC Berkeley students. This year’s contest challenged participants to transform the brand Games of Berkeley. After three decades in downtown Berkeley, the game store is moving to a new location closer to the Cal campus, and is seeking marketing strategies to attract new customers while keeping old ones. The team’s winning design targeted Cal students as the primary user group.
