The school year is starting! Are you interested in improving your teamwork and creative thinking skills? EMP is hosting Ecohack, a hackathon about solving environment-related issues. Our hackathon takes place over the span of 3 days, from the afternoon of Saturday, September 4th to the morning of Monday, September 6th. Participants will be able to cooperate with their teammates to pick a solvable issue related to the topic and create their own innovative, tech-related product to solve the issue!
During the hackathon, teams will research, design, and create their product. There will also be student-driven workshops, giving the participants a chance to learn about technical skills and soft skills to aid their product.

Submitting to this hackathon could earn you:
You may submit a video of your presentation (8 minutes max) including your project, or you may just submit the project and give the presentation live (8 minutes max, with 3 minutes for questions from judges). You must submit your project on Monday Sept. 6th by 3:00 PM.
Participants’ awareness of other attempts to solve the same problem they are, and how the team positions their hackathon entry. Does it pull something off that hasn’t been pulled off before? Does it do something new and unique?
How well did the team work together? How were specific situations/differences in ideas handled? How were conflicts situated? How well is the code organized?
Can the project be realistically completed in real life? Has the team planned too much or too little?
How confident is the team in their project? Do they speak clearly and confidently? Is there coordination between the team members?
