Booz Allen’s Charleston Digital Hub is happy to be hosting another Hackathon on Saturday, March 7th, 2020. Doors will open for check-in starting at 8:00am with the event officially kicking off at 9:00am and ending at 9:00pm.
This year’s Hub Hackathon will be focused on climate change. By 2030, the world must tackle hard issues resulting from climate change, including rising temperatures, sea level rise, air pollution, increased hurricane intensity, and the necessity of migrating to alternative energy sources. If these critical issues are not addressed, the world will face widespread resource depletion, natural disasters, and disease. Each of these problems are global, and their effects are seen and felt nearly every day in the Charleston area. As our city is only 8 feet above sea level, coastal flooding occurs regularly, causing us to face a grim reality that our workplaces, our homes, and our communities may be lost if drastic action is not taken. The goal for this year’s Hub Hackathon is to directly tackle these issues by kicking off the new decade with new solutions for climate change.
This event will be a full-day challenge in which you and your team (3-6 people) will work together to make a better tomorrow. This year, the event will be split into three competition tracks, with prizes awarded to the top two teams within each track.
