The Mission

Teams will submit a working prototype that can championed by one of the social change makers to implement and address a submitted problem statement.

 

Problem statements

A team of volunteers is hosting a hackathon at the Impact Hub in Baltimore to bring together tech innovators with social changemakers, to share ideas and develop solutions to solve or greatly improve some of the most pressing problems facing Baltimore and cities around the world.

 

As a community leader, we are asking you to submit a problem statement that can be selected at the event. If your problem statement is selected, there is an opportunity to work with our video team to share the story with the hackathon audience. Moreover, as a selected problem statement, you can be a mentor during the event to guide the attendees.

 

Categories for problem statements include:

·          Health

·         Crime

·         Transportation
