Hackathon Theme: Health and Wellness
Participants will come together in a learning-first-minded event, to create tools that will inspire people to engage in health and wellness activities in their day to day lives.
Build the first iteration of your project that facilitates health and wellness activities.
This is an exercise in learning.The pursuit of knowledge, risk-taking, and code integrity are rewarded, as opposed to merely delivering a clean product.
Must be in a team with at least 3 people and at most 4 people.
Use Discord (invite link privately sent) to communicate with your teammates for the duration of the Hackathon.
Hackers are not allowed to use projects they have already worked on previously to the event.
Hackers can create any type of project, as long as it is relevant to the hackathon’s theme: Health and Wellness.
"Health and wellness" refers to any activity that promotes mental and physical well-being. Examples cover a wide range such as yoga, meditation, journaling, and wellness-tourism. Projects should revolve around creating tools that will help and inspire people to monitor/enhance their mental and/or physical health.
Hackers can compete for categories listed on our DevPost.
Projects can be geared toward web development, mobile development, and data science.
Hackers should also be able to answer the question: “How does my project relate to the theme?”
Projects do not have to be deployed. If the project is not deployed, please provide instructions on how to run it locally.
Example project ideas:
Food / nutrition apps
Travel booking app for wellness tourism
- Audio meditation app
- Data analysis of nutrition and food
- App that uses machine learning to provide customized inspirational quotations / stories
Hackers have from August 22nd, 2022 to August 26th, 2022 at 7 pm PM EDT to work on and submit their projects.
Hackers are free to continue working on their projects after the hackathon ends.
Teams must submit their projects on our DevPost by August 26th, 2022, 7 PM EDT for them to be judged.
Please submit a link to the project’s GitHub repository and/or deployed website.
Please provide a slide deck (PowerPoint/Canva, etc.) or a video that showcases your project
