Our original Random Hacks of Kindness has been revamped, it has the same heart and soul, but this year we bring you an event entirely focused on helping people with disabilities.
For 3 days in April we are bringing together engineers, developers, creators, and innovators to build solutions for people with disabilities. AND it’s open to more than only students! Yes, that’s right, friends, family, alumni, finally a hackathon/makeathon you can participate in!
We provide the venue, fabrication lab, food, and mentors
You provide energy, passion, skills, and creativity
Work with a need knower in empathetic design to create a solution customized to their unique challenge.
This is going to be life-changing in so many ways.
