An Applied Social Justice Hackathon

Hosted by the Brandeis MakerLab partnered with the Brandeis International Business School, this year’s ‘Deis Hacks is a 24-hour design competition targeted at real world solutions.

This social design challenge focused on disequity sources our hack-challenges from the 30 or so not for profits and social enterprise organizations local to Waltham. Instead of having a single hackathon challenge, this event’s theme will fuse design thinking, digital fabrication & social impact to work on real world solutions for non-profit companies. Each hackathon team will chose a design challenge from Waltham’s diverse non-profit community they find compelling to focus on.

Doors open on Saturday February 8th at 8am. On Sunday February 9th at 1pm, a panel of judges including community activists, technology specialists and educators will judge the project pitches on how well they satisfy the needs of the non-profit, as well as on Complexity, Creativity, Originality, Adherence to the Challenge, and a Popular Vote.
