The Associated Students of Ohlone College Research and Development Division is a group of dedicated students who are organizing a hackathon targeting high school and community college students.Our Event
OhloneHacks 3.0 is the third iteration of the first community college hackathon in the Bay Area. Our mission is to offer learning opportunities students who may not otherwise have access to other events held by larger universities due to limited availability. We endeavor to provide resources and collaborative space to expose our peers to technology that is not traditionally used in the classroom.Our Themes
With constant change and growth in the way teachers and educators instruct, computer apps and programs are becoming a normality in the classroom. From well-known apps like Kahoot to Remind, teachers and students are able to collaborate and learn online. While teaching and learning online has been a big obstacle these past years, our use for technology in school has grown even more. This educational theme involves the development of software that solves some educational problem, in or out of the classroom, in order to encourage students to learn a diversity of subjects.
One of the many challenges our world faces today revolves around the sustainability of our environment. From climate change to pollution to the increase of our carbon footprint,and much more, many concerns like these can play into the poor state of our environment. This environmental theme involves the development of software to combat environmental issues by raising awareness or through assisting the present-day endeavors in protecting the environment. The issues you can attack are broad and wide, including, but not limited to tackling pollution, global warming, and deforestation.
