⭐ Mission

In the current state of our world, there has never been more of a need to create interdisciplinary communities to build tools for important social change. Despite the value of STEM in civic engagement, there has always been a large disconnect between the two disciplines. That is why our focus is on providing a welcoming, engaging, and creative environment to help bridge the gap between STEM and civic engagement by challenging participants to address major issues within the realm of civic engagement using tech.

We pride ourselves in helping both beginners and experienced hackers explore technology and develop their skillsβ€”with a conscience. Because of this, all kinds of hacks will be allowed (software, hardware, data-driven). If your team just has an idea, design, or prototype, your project will still be considered! Remember, these are just as important as the implementation.
