Ideathon is an intensive two-day experience for the UW College of Education's undergraduate majors and minors that challenges participants to address real-world problems through collaboration and innovation. Ideathon 2019 will focus on the south Seattle community of Othello and the UW-Othello Commons facility that will open in January 2019.  This year's challenge question is:

We believe that within 5 years, the Othello community will be a model for innovative and equitable education practices.  How can UW-Othello Commons be a catalyst for making this vision a reality?

Ideathon will take place over two days during the weekend of February 22-24 (exact dates and times to be announced). Participants will earn academic credit, engage with community partners and be coached by graduate students. Meals included both days.

Applications are due by January 9. Email questions.
