DESIGN CHALLENGE HACKATHON
Have you ever wanted to be a part of the solution for issues in your community? Have you ever had an idea to solve those issues? Attend our Design Challenge Hackathon to partner up with like-minded students and find the resources to turn ideas into reality.
The Design Challenge Hackathon will allow students to learn a series of skill sets through workshops, mentorship, and curriculum provided and facilitated by GiveBackHack, an organization which brings people together to develop sustainable solutions to pressing social issues. Students will have the opportunity to pitch their own idea or join another team to work with through the event.
Students will work in teams to do user validation, develop a business model and create a prototype. Students will also learn of ways to leverage technology while building out an idea. Before closing, teams will pitch what they built to the community and judges, with prizes awarded to winning teams.
Areas of Focus:
This event is open to high school students throughout Northeast Ohio.
