Event Details:

Join us for the Toledo regional Hackathon for Erie Hack on Friday, March 24th through Sunday March 26th!

Erie Hack Water Data and Engineering Hackathon is a tech-driven water innovation competition and accelerator program that will bring together coders, developers, engineers, data experts, water professionals and every day concerned citizens to generate creative solutions to Lake Erie's biggest challenges. The ErieHack competition runs from February to May, with regional competitions happening in Detroit, Toledo, Cleveland and Buffalo.

During the Toledo Hackathon participants will form teams of up to five people to tackle the compeition challenges. The teams will then have 48 hours to develop their project as much as possible and present their work on Sunday the 26th. The best teams as determined by a panel of judges will move on to a semi-final in Detroit in April and the final summit in Cleveland in May. There's $100,000 in prizes up for grabs!

The event will kick off on Friday the 24th at 6 pm with speakers talking about major challenges with Lake Erie and then a presentation of project ideas people have and the formation of teams. Work will continue through the weekend until early evening on Sunday. The facility will be open and accessible for all 48 hours, although participants will not be required to stay the whole time. All food and drink will be provided by the organizing team. Parking is free.

You are welcome to find some friends or colleagues to create a team or just come to the opening evening and find a project to hook up with. Hackathons are a fun, exciting atmosphere that facilitates not only the growth of a project idea but also of the participants. It's a great place to develop new skills and meet new people.
