Youth Civic Hackathons
What is Civic Hacking?
“Civic hacking is people working together quickly and creatively to make their cities better for everyone.”
A civic hackathon is a 1-2 day event in which people rapidly form teams to build prototypes that tackle a pre-defined problem or set of problems. Youth hackathons are fantastic project-based-learning experiences that combine civics, design thinking, rapid prototyping, teamwork and social entrepreneurship in a fun, hands-on setting for learners.
Our most recent civic hackathon
In March of 2016 we helped Facing History and Ourselves run their first youth civic hackathon.
