Whether you are a graduate or undergrad, have coding and data skills or social sector expertise, specialize in marketing or product design, or are just interested in participating, you are welcome to register. Teams of 4-6 students from diverse areas of expertise will form prior to the event and will have the opportunity to review the data sets ahead of time.
