Hack for Humanity 2019

Saturday, March 2 –

Watson Institute, 111 Thayer Street

Building on the success of our inaugural hackathon last year, the Humanitarian Innovation Initiative will be organizing the second annual Hack for Humanity event in the spring of 2019. With this humanitarian focused hackathon, we aim to bring together students from across Rhode Island to learn about the most pressing needs in the humanitarian sphere and develop creative ideas for innovative programs or technologies that could help improve the lives of disaster and conflict affected communities around the world.

Using the case of Hurricane María as a framing lens, this year's Hack for Humanity will focus on addressing the current and future challenges that hurricanes pose to the United States. More Details >
