Design Challenge Hackathon
February 11 & 12, 2022
by Veale Youth Entrepreneurship Forum
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.
Our two-day 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. On the second day of the session, teams will pitch what they built to the community and judges, with cash prizes awarded to winning teams.
