Hackathons bring diverse people together to intensively work on projects. Teams can focus on equipment, process improvement or software and hardware development. They occur over a few days, and usually have a theme, with the goal being to create a prototype. Hackathons challenge people to imagine what might be possible, and gives them a chance to make it a reality. We give our student participants and their mentors just 48 hours to develop their ideas, with hopes that some will develop into viable businesses. Starting Friday night when the problems and ideas are pitched and teams are formed, and ending Sunday afternoon, each team will build a prototype and present their work to the judges and the audience at the end.

We are changing healthcare by bringing ideas and makers together.
