Why the San Ramon Hackathon?

Located in the Bay Area, San Ramon is surrounded by people working in the tech industry. Why not host hackathons to bring them together to solve the city’s challenges? Their creativity and experience can help build apps, products, and ideas that benefit the community! With the enthusiastic support from the Mayor’s office, the inaugural San Ramon Hackathon in 2018 was a huge success!

For 2019, Green Apple Education Foundation has partnered with the San Ramon Valley Unified School District to host the 2nd annual San Ramon Hackathon. The event is open to all in the Bay Area. Bring your brilliant and innovative ideas and help solve the challenge described below!


The Challenge: Student Well-being

Schools are the places where students get educated, find friends, and enjoy their social life. But just like the society outside of the walls, schools are also places where students can suffer physical or mental problems. For example, Smoking, especially vaping (and in some places drugs), has become an epidemic in high schools, as declared by US General Surgeon in Dec 2018. Anxiety and depression caused by peer pressure, parent pressure, and self pressure, even suicide, are more common now than a decade ago. Student safety concerns such as bullying and violence continue to deteriorate. In the extreme scenarios, students have lost their precious young lives to gun violence.

Each Hackathon participates should reflect on their own experience and choose the problem they would like to solve passionately. Examples of leveraging technology to promote the safety and well-being of the students can include, but not limited to:

  • How to educate students and parents about the harm of vaping and drugs, and prevent them from becoming addicted for life?
  • How to detect and report the use or dealing of vaping and drugs in schools?
  • With so much pressure from class work, grades, their peers and parents, how to help student manage anxiety? How to educate teachers and parents so they can detect and help sooner?
  • Bullying can happen on campus or on social networks. It's a huge safety concern. How to educate, detect, and report bullying so it is stopped at earliest possible moment?
  • How to detect early signs of suicidal behavior in students and help avoid the tragedy?
  • Depressed students bring safety concerns to schools. How to detect signs of violent intention and report to prevent it from happening?
  • Emergency preparedness: how to prepare and respond to disasters (natural or man-made), and help each other in the situation?
