The Bing Fund would like to invite you to join us at the Hack Autism Event, a hackathon brought to you by Bing Fund in partnership with UW Autism Center, Seattle Children’s Hospital, Seattle Children's Autism Guild, and Teachtown. We're getting together folks like you – thinkers, hackers, designers, tinkerers, amplifiers – to participate, give feedback, test, and hack together. For a purpose. For autism.
At the event, each speaker from the partnering autism groups will present an age-specific scenario. Teams organized on the spot will then work with scenario experts to generate a collection of prototypes designed to address one of the scenarios. At the end, these prototypes will be judged by a team of experts with prizes and consideration for further development awarded to winning solutions. For more details on the scenarios and flow, see the event page.
The event is open to anyone who wants to come and contribute, and is an opportunity to spend time with the Bing Fund team, autism experts, and an array of awesome tech/design/marketing minds all coming together to help make a difference for autism.
If you’re in Seattle, we would love to see you join us at the UW Hub March 22-24, 2013. Register at http://www.eventbrite.com/event/5364862448#.
