Make It Better is the Hackathon theme and a call to action: Find a way to make the world a little better—for humanity, yourself, your dog, or a random stranger. All you need to do is identify a problem, begin imagining how to solve it, and you're well on your way to hacking. You then have a full day to begin to make your idea a reality!
The Prospector Theater
- and their employees known as Prospects -
may provide inspiration. The Prospector is a first-run movie theater providing meaningful employment to adults with disabilities. At the Hackathon, Prospects
will share how they make the world a little better and where they could use a little help.
Hackers have the option of tackling Prospector Challenges or working on their own unrelated ideas. Check out the video below to see an example from a previous year of a needed "hack." Get the popcorn in the bag!
