Description

On Tuesday, June 27, Senior Planet will host its first hackathon, a forward-thinking event that will challenge older people to become quick studies in design thinking, bringing their wisdom, creativity and knowledge of what it is to be older to a one-day contest. Design students from universities in the city will also participate.

Our members responded so enthusiastically that we had to form a waiting list. There are still a few seats for people who bring design skills or hackathon experience. Apply here. https://goo.gl/forms/evdqZVqaE0LsDCGS2
