Subject: [crash] Oct 27th hack to place education in kids hands
To: Crash Space <crashspace at googlegroups.com>


Hey everyone I spoke with Sean and he recommended posting to the
group. Unfortunately he won't be able to join us since he'll be in
Berlin. But we've got some amazing folks coming from Mozilla and the
hacks will also be placed in front of a variety of funders (NGOs,
angels etc.) who want to place resources behind innovative tech that
powers experiential education.

We're looking for some talented hackers in the LA area to take part in
an exciting hack for social good. The goal is to create prototypes
that places education directly in students' hands in an effort to
unlock creativity in at-risk students.

On Oct 27th we'll be staging a hackathon in association with the
Mozilla Foundation, DIY DAYS, the WorkBook Project, Open Access Week
and UCLA.

The goal is to develop prototypes that help to reboot education.

Come with a team or come and find a team to work with. This is a
social hack that is intended to be fun and for a very good cause. The
goal is to help reboot aspects of the educational system, find ways to
empower
students and learning while at the same time having fun.

Prototypes will be presented on stage on Oct 28th at the close of DIY
DAYS in front of an audience as well as a special panel of angel
investors, NGOs and educators.

Food and drink supplied by your friends at the Mozilla Foundation.
