Santa Clara University's social good hackathon
DEVPOST REGISTRANTS: PLEASE ALSO SIGN UP THROUGH THIS FORM!: https://forms.gle/1qHfTBf1bMhA2Uit5
Hack for Humanity is Santa Clara University’s social good hackathon. You and a team of 2-6 people will work together to develop tools and applications which will be used by those in your larger community to make the end user’s life better.
In the past, we have seen teams build many incredible projects, including:
- Interactive preliminary health diagnosis applications using Amazon Alexa
- Messenger bot applications that help people become better recyclers
- Drones enabling internet access in the aftermath of natural disasters
The possibilities are endless, and we would love your participation to help us push for a more conscious, compassionate, and competent community.

How technically impressive was the hack? Was the technical problem the team tackled difficult? Did it use a particularly clever technique or did it use many different components? Is it a scalable design/solution?
Did the team put thought into the user experience? For a website, this might be about how beautiful the CSS or graphics are. For a hardware project, it might be about how good the human-computer interaction is.
Does the hack show the team thought “outside of the box”? Does it have a certain “wow factor” to it? Is it different compared to previous solutions?
How much good could this hack bring to others in the specific theme?
Is there a demo of the product’s functionality? Can major user action flows be completed without significant obstacles?
