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!
Schools are the places where students get educated, find friends, and enjoy their social lives. But schools are also places where students can suffer physical or mental problems. Smoking, vaping, and in some places harder drugs, have become epidemic in high schools, as declared by the U.S. Surgeon General in December 2018. Anxiety and depression caused by peer pressure, parent pressure, and self pressure are more common now than a decade ago. Suicide rates have risen along with them. The state of prominent issues like bullying and violence continues to deteriorate. In extreme scenarios, students have lost their precious young lives to gun violence.
Each Hackathon participant should reflect on his or her own experience and choose the problem they would like to solve passionately. Examples of questions that technology (including Apps, Mobile phones, Maps, Messaging, IoT devices, Social Networks, VR, etc) can help to tackle include, but are not limited to:
Winners have opportunities to continue work with the city and school district on their submissions post the Hackathon.
Additional prizes and honorable mentions to be determined prior to or during the event.
Bring your laptop, extension cord, and any other materials you need to code or develop your new concepts, and build a presentation. Most importantly, bring your innovative mind, talent, passion, team work, and community spirit!
