Thames River Transit Hackathon

As part of The Thames River Innovation Places Program, Spark Makers, Connecticut College and CURE Innovation Commons are holding The Thames River Hackathon. This Hackathon is part of the Northeast Hackathon series in which innovative people gather and hack together software and hardware to make cool stuff.
The theme of this hackathon is Transit and will feature kick-off presentations from local experts who will explain some of the transit-oriented issues in the New London & Groton area.

Teams work through the weekend to develop their prototype and then pitch to a team of judges on Sunday afternoon at CURE Innovation Commons. There will be prizes and acclaim for those that come up with the best solutions.
Come and meet some great people who want to create new solutions to local problems. Register Here.
