About the High School Hack

While the broader Erie Hack competition is run in complimentary stages over a multi-month period, a series of condensed high school hackathons are a key component of the program. These High School Hackathons bring the Erie Hack concept into the youth engagement and education space in order to cultivate the next generation of water innovators. Our High School Hackathons typically take the form of a single-day event that coaches students through team formation, idea generation, and business pitches.

Cleveland Water Alliance has co-developed a framework for building the impact innovation mindset within students through an experiential learning process that focuses on collaborative problem-solving. Students from a broad variety of backgrounds and interest areas, are encouraged to participate including:

Hackers: Coders, Engineers, Architects, 3D Printers, Makers

Hustlers: Entrepreneurs, Marketers, Community Organizers

Hipsters: Visual Artists, Graphic Designers, Design Thinkers, Communicators

Hippies: Environmentalists, Biologists, Chemists, Ecologists, Hydrologists

Top performing teams in participating cities will receive prizes totaling over $1000 and promising innovations will be supported with business development services from local partner organizations to launch and/or sustain the solutions developed through the competition.

The Erie Hack team is dedicated to leveraging this event to help engaged students become future-ready. The processes is structured to give High School students many experiences and opportunities often not typically available until the undergraduate or even post-graduate levels. We believe these experiences are essential to empowering youth to become lifelong innovators.

Key components of the experience include:

• Solution-Oriented Research – affirming feasibility of real-world impact

• Rapid Project Design – creative problem solving in supportive environment

• Team Collaboration– inter and intra personal skills

• Business Pitch – Narrative development and self-confidence

 

Each Erie Hack city has a different approach to engaging the local high school ecosystem so reach out to your local Erie Hack organizer or ErieHack@clewa.org if you’re interested in learning what’s going on in your city.
