Carollo is partnering with Our Lady of Peace Academy (OLP) in San Diego as an event sponsor and is sending a local “near-to-peer” engineer, Brian Owen, to serve as a judge and mentor. High school girls from all around San Diego will be spending the day coming up with a proposed solution to a given problem statement, this year focusing on global health and women empowerment.
What is a Hackathon Exactly?
A Hackathon is a meeting of the minds to challenge current notions, problem solve, create, and collaborate. OLP’s Engineering Projects in Community Service club (EPICS), the hosts of the annual Hackathon, focuses on how STEM can solve global issues using science, technology, engineering, and math. This year’s theme is centered around Engineering Health in the Modern World. This is a friendly competition and the teams will be presenting their solutions to a panel of judges. Teams in first, second, and third place will receive prizes.
