In major urban cities like Baltimore, and many others across the nation, students are waking up as early as 5 AM and taking public transit to make it to school by 8 AM. The list of homeless students on a teacher’s roster grows year after year. School buildings struggle to stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. And, many dedicated teachers use their personal funds or relay on crowdsourcing for additional resources and support.
Hack Baltimore is calling on all of our teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators, community liaisons, parents, business owners, community leaders, and tech professionals!
You don’t have to be a techie to create sustainable solutions for Baltimore’s youth.
Baltimore is a unique and vibrant city, and though there are many reasons why we’re called “Charm City”, we tend to make the news for our flaws rather than our strengths. And hackathons are a great way to engage the broader community to explore technology as a way to help solve them.
