Hack the Earth: People Focused, Earth Centered

Presented by Emory University, Saikawa Lab

*This event was previously titled Atlanta Environmental Health Hackathon*
How can YOU solve the environmental health problems in Atlanta? Air quality and lead exposure are both issues causing health problems in the city. With your ideas for innovative public policy or product solutions, we can start addressing these problems. On Friday evening, attend the virtual kick-off info session to be briefed on the issues by experienced Emory students. Attend virtual office hours with Emory students throughout the weekend to talk through questions. And finally, join our virtual showcase on Sunday evening to present your solution. You could win money and one-on-one time with Emory students and professors to talk about your proposed solution! Participate in the Atlanta Environmental Health Hackathon to solve critical issues in the Atlanta community!
To participate, pull together a team of up to 5 students and have everyone register. In order to prepare for the Hackathon, we'll cut off registration on March 11. Learn more here.
