Earlier this month, a group of GA students in Washington, D.C. took part in a Hackathon hosted by Partnership for a Healthier America. Participants were asked to prototype and build a working solution focused on the theme of Childhood Obesity, exploring two opportunities within that challenge:
- To help teachers empower students to make healthy choices about the food they consume, whether at home or at school.
- To create an information avenue that shows families the healthy food options and physical activity opportunities available locally.
Team GA consisted of Kelly Parker (User Experience Design Student), Johnny Austin (Front-End Wed Development Instructor), Datrianna Meeks (User Experience Design Student), Matt Tyrrell (Front-End Web Development Student) and friend of GA, Robin Newman. Together, Team GA came up with: Get Real!
