Event Overview:

HACKtivate Ed is a two-day hackathon in which developers, data analysts, and designers will form teams, choose a challenge outlined by one of our partner organizations from the education sector, and create a solution (an app or analysis) to be evaluated by a panel of judges. Our event’s unique format is designed to engage a broader audience than the traditional EdTech community, bringing in educators and leaders in the education space and building connections between the education sector and the heart of the tech sector with partners such as Code for America.

At the end of the day, our participants will benefit from the exchange of ideas and best practices. Our education partners will have new apps and analyses that point the direction of how to best address their pressing problems, and technologists have gained new insight into a unique, $1.3 trillion dollar market as well as resources to help them further develop their ideas. Lessons, apps and analyses created during the event would be documented, hosted on the Activate Ed Exchange, and disseminated to the broader Activate ED community.

Below you'll find the event schedule and examples of the interesting challenges you could find yourself tackling at HACKtivate Ed.

HACKtivate ED

Four Education Pioneers fellows came together with a challenge - how can we better connect the Bay area's tech talent with its education sector? 

Their solution: HACKtivate ED.

HACKtivate ED brings together the Bay Area tech community and local education organizations with a common objective - tackling important, immediate challenges in K-12 education.
