Engage with age! Use your skills to revolutionize the aging experience.

We’re looking for a good mix of talented people from a variety of backgrounds – both students and non students – to be part of our local LeadingAge HackFest, where you will use technology to solve challenges facing older adults.

Teams will develop a product - it could an app, a website, an interactive online experience, or a device, but it must address some aspect of aging.

Participants will have one weekend to design and build their product.

Ideas will be generated at the event and products will be judged on originality, usability, feasibility, design relevance, and on being most developed by the end of the session.

Cash prizes! Winning team from HackFest Pittsburgh will compete in the national HackFest competition in New Orleans, LA, October 29-November 1.

Go to our Eventbrite page for more details, official rules and to register for the competition: hackfestpgh.eventbrite.com. Must register by March 21, 2017.
