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.
