THE PUBLIC INTEREST TECH UNIVERSITY NETWORK RESPONDS TO THE COVID-19 CRISIS!
From data tracking and modeling to resource matching apps, public interest technologists have a unique opportunity to help our communities respond to the current crisis. The Resiliency Challenge is a 9-week virtual hackathon, with 3-week sprints, aimed at helping colleges and communities cope with the Covid-19 crisis.
If you are a student and want to join a hackathon team, you can learn more and sign up here: https://theresiliencychallenge.io/
If you have experienced or witnessed a problem in your community that you think could be solved through technology, consider submitting a challenge project for students to work on as part of the hackathon. You can submit projects here: https://tinyurl.com/resiliency-project. You can see a list of initial projects here (more are being submitted every day).
If you are staff or faculty and want to get involved as a mentor for a challenge or a judge, you can sign up at the link above as well: https://tinyurl.com/resiliency-join.
