Submit challenges about smart cities to Stanford's first intercollegiate hackathon! 

WHAT: 500 awesome programmers / designers / builders creating for a weekend

WHEN: 10 PM on Friday February 20th until 4 PM on Sunday February 22nd

WHERE: Arrillaga Alumni Center, 326 Galvez Street, on campus

WHO: 500 awesome builders and hackers from Stanford & all over the country. The registration for the event is now closed but we are still looking for challenges for our hackers to work on.

WHY: A weekend dedicated to building amazing things with awesome people. 

People are invited to submit challenges to make cities smarter and better places to live, then amazing hackers from Stanford and other schools will look at them and turn them into reality. A major focus for TreeHacks is to encourage our hackers to hack for social good and this is where you come in. 

We need ideas for our hackers to build stuff. The challenges can be:

1. General - So we could have challenges like: "I wish we knew the air quality in our city." And then a hacking team could build a prototype for a wireless sensor network using Arduino, Intel’s Galileo, etc to measure the air quality using your phone. Such challenges are simply ideas not backed by either prior research or solid data but a lot of imagination. 

2. Precise - You can give us exact technical specifications or models you think might work best for your project. It is highly encouraged that you also provide us with some data on your project. This allows our hackers to work on your challenges ea

We want an ideal mix of both general and precise challenges. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at mchopra@stanford
