Hack The Power 2018 was created with the goal of
discovering safe, equitable, and eco-friendly solutions to
Reduce, Reuse, and Renew sources of Energy.
Why a Hackathon?
A 24-hour mission critical challenge based on a real-world scenario to unite students across Rhode Island and leverage the group’s collective imagination, resources, network, access, and expertise in order to find new solutions to a real world challenge.
Energy is one of the United Nations Top Global Challenges.
Why Rhode Island students?
To give the next generation an opportunity to re-imagine the way we use Energy and a platform to pitch their BOLD solutions on how the world can equitably power-up, plug-in and recharge.
Rhode Island is taking bold steps to position its future workforce as a regional industry player.
