Hacks for Humanity participants seek to crack the code of a better future

More from this show

Arizona State University’s Project Humanities hosts a 36-hour hackathon this weekend, inviting participants to find ways to hack into the status quo and bring about societal good.

Hacks for Humanity is an annual event on ASU campus where participants are given resources to create new technologies that can address local and global issues. This year’s areas of focus are education, health care and the Earth. The projects are competitive, with prizes awarded to the members of the top three teams.

Project Humanities Director Neal Lester said the hackathon is also designed to teach entrepreneurs about the importance of including humanitarian ideals into business ventures.
