The One Health Hackathon - Global High School Hackathon
The One Health Hackathon is a global health innovation event open to high schoolers from around the world. Teams will be assigned to one of 4 diseases (influenza, malaria, COVID-19, or Ebola), for which they will have 4 days to come up with an action plan. Solutions can come in whatever form they want, including policy platforms, business pitches, tech prototypes, and more. Teams will be guided by leading global health experts throughout the hackathon, through one-on-one feedback sessions and a highly distinguished speaker series. We currently have mentors and speakers confirmed from 9 different countries, including the former dean of the Harvard School of Public Health, the CEO of Metabiota, the director of the Afrique One-ASPIRE research consortium, and more. For high school students, the chance to directly work with experts of this calibre, tackle real-world diseases, and meet peers from around the world will be an incredible learning opportunity. Please feel free to forward this message to your students and staff. Students may sign up in teams of 2-4 or individually; participation is completely free of charge, and the deadline to sign up is Friday, October 9. Teachers and parents are also welcome to sign up to watch the speaker series.
