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:
