On April 17-19, CEE and Sustainability at MIT will team up to host the debut of the Clean Earth Hackathon – a new student-run initiative that provides a unique opportunity for students or young professionals to devise sustainable practices and find real solutions for a positive environmental impact. On Friday, the attending industry and academic representatives will pose real-world environmental challenges for the participants to tackle throughout the weekend. At the conclusion of the event, the teams will showcase their solution to a panel of faculty judges, and prizes will be awarded in each of the four categories: Natural resource management; mobility in the modern world; environmentally conscious design; and re-fueling the next generation. “This is an exciting new initiative that will engage many members of the MIT community,” wrote Professor Markus Buehler, CEE Department Head. “The signup of well over one hundred participants reflects MIT’s potential to make a difference in addressing critical challenges.” For the full event schedule and more details, please see here
