Event description

Description

Hosted by the Brandeis MakerLab partnered with the Brandeis International Business School, this year's 'Deis Hacks is an evolution of the Printathon and Codestellation hack-events with a community engagement twist! We are so excited for this event that we are creating a whole new brand we've been saving since the MakerLab founded - the first 'Deis Hacks!

Expanding on last spring's Hackathon, the Waltham community facing “Social Design Challenge on Disequity”, We are sourcing our hack-challenges from the 30 or so not for profits and social enterprise organizations local to Waltham. Instead of having a single hackathon challenge, this event's theme will fuse design thinking, digital fabrication & social impact to work on real world solutions for non-profit companies. Each hackathon team will chose a design challenge from waltham's diverse non-profit community they find compelling to focus on.

Doors open on Saturday January 26th at 8am. On Sunday January 27th at 1pm, a panel of judges including community activists, technology specialists and educators will judge the project pitches on how well they satisfy the needs of the non-profit, as well as on Complexity, Creativity, Originality, Adherence to the Challenge, and a Popular Vote.
