Ready to make a difference over the weekend? Thinc-a-thon returns to UGA! Join us for two fun, intense days of making as we craft, hack, and build human-centered design solutions to real world problems related to food, dining, and health. Prizes will be awarded for the projects that best meet the intersection of viability, desirability, and feasibility. You do not need an idea or a team in advance as projects will be formed at the event. Check out pictures from our last event here:

The 4th floor study room of the Main Library will be reserved for teams to work on projects. Move around furniture, write on walls, and use low res materials (e.g. paper, rubber bands, paper clips, cardboard, etc) to brainstorm and construct ideas. Mentors will be available to provide feedback and classes will be held on prototyping, pitching, and more.

About the organizer

Organized by

Thinc. is a university-wide initiative designed to encourage UGA students, faculty and staff to see the world of opportunities both local and global, and to start something in response.  That “something” might be a new for-profit company or a not-for-profit social venture. It might change something in your own neighborhood or community, or it might change the world.
