Join us to create tech solutions for social change at #WorldCreateDay, Hackaday’s worldwide brainstorming session for the 2016 Hackaday Prize design concept challenge! We’ll form teams and submit ideas for projects that leverage our hardware, coding, scientific, design and mechanical skills.

The Goal:

By the end of this meetup, each team will submit a project to the Hackaday Prize design challenge. See challenge details here:

Need some inspiration for your project? Here are some ideas:

Citizen Science - Build a graphene supercapacitor, study the effects of a behavior, build an open source instrumentation device.

Automation - Build a device that makes breakfast or buys laundry detergent when you’re running low. Automatically track stuff, automate any process, build a Me-robot to do your every whim

Assistive technologies - Build a project that helps others move better, see better, or live better. Whether that means exoskeletons, a better wheelchair, a braille display, or educational software, we want to see it.

Or any other idea you have to hack for social change! Leverage your talent and find solutions to address technology issues facing humanity today.

12:30pm - 1:00pm: Nigerian problems and their categories - which can be solved using hardware?

1:00pm - 2:00pm: Brainstorm on solutions - rank both problems and solutions in terms of need and feasibility

2:00pm - 2:30pm: Voting on solutions - to be logged on Hackaday simultaneously; formation of teams around these solutions based on interest and skill set

2:30pm - 3pm: Networking time and wrap-up; future meetup plans?

What to Bring:

• A friend

• Laptop and charger (optional) - to upload projects on Hackaday

• Good cheer
