DLL Storify of BLUE1647's "MLK I Have a Dream" Hackathon -- Monday 1/18/16

Last update: Monday 1/18/16
Blue1647's Hackathon Series brings together urban youth, grades 7th-12th to identify community problems then build a prototype App to address that problem, all within 12 hours. The hackathons encourage all students to take the first step in coding: trying it out! Since 2010, its Edison-Award winning youth education program encouraged over 10,000 students across the world to do just that —try out coding and think innovatively about how to solve a community problem. More information about the MLK Hackathon can be found on its event page.
