Event Timeline:

  • Friday: 5:30pm - 8:30pm
    Community partners will have two minutes to pitch an open-ended “challenge” to participants, who will then choose which challenge they want to work on for the next day. Food will be served.
  • Saturday: 8:00am - 8:00pm
    Participants will choose a challenge, work all day in teams to analyze their chosen issue, and come up with a novel, innovative solutions (or spectacular failures!). Solutions and presentations will be handed in on a flash drive by 8:00pm Saturday evening. Meals will be provided.
