HackEd: Brainstorming Solutions to Issues in Education

Modeled after “hackathons,” where computer programmers collaborate on solutions to software and programming issues, HackEd is one way the Florida State University College of Education aims to address issues within the public education system and generate viable solutions to these problems. Students from all majors are invited to participate; no programming experience required!

  • The event will be a team-based activity with multiple tracks to choose from, including education policy, educational technology, and best practices (in and outside of the classroom)
  • Teams should consist of no more than 3 members
  • The topic/problem will be presented at 8:00 AM the day of the competition
  • Teams will receive support from subject matter experts in education, administration and social entrepreneurship who can assist them in coming up with solutions
  • The teams must create a prototype or presentation for their solution
  • Judging begins at 5:00 PM; winners will be announced at a reception to follow
  • Winners will receive cool prizes!

Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Please register here by January 18, 2017.
