About This Event

SOLA/HACK!

Design Thinking and Social Entrepreneurship Hackathon for South L.A.

Members of a community are too often relegated to being mere spectators of change. How can they instead become active participants and influencers in the changes that affect them most?

In this mini-hackathon event, participants will use design thinking, UX design methods and web development skills in an entrepreneurial spirit to address social, economic, and environmental challenges specific to South L.A. Participants will learn about these challenges with two kick-off talks, and then form teams to brainstorm and rapidly prototype solutions.

There is a possibility that projects developed during the hackathon may be featured at the next TEDx Crenshaw event.
