Hack for Global Good welcomes students in grade 8-12.  All expertise needed: creatives, writers, techies and athletes—all working together to identify a solution to the proposed topic. No coding or prior Hackathon experience required!

WHY

“Hack for Global Good is a unique experience: getting the opportunity to not only come up with a solution to a global problem, but first identify the problem that you want to solve.

WHY EDUCATION?

EDUCATION was selected among the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. With the mass adoption of on-demand, free learning resources, and the ability to generate impact and income in this creator economy, learning is quickly being reimagined all over the world.

WHY NOW?

There are no better experts to help design and develop solutions to school or education-related challenges than students!

Hack for Global Good offers registrants the opportunity to engage in this year’s EDUCATION theme by placing students at the center of their own learning.

What if you could influence how individuals learn and experience school in the future? This would require that you UNLEARN what has always been, to UNCOVER problems, in order to UNLOCK new possibilities!
