Challenge: This one’s just for fun. At last year’s Harvard Latinx Hackathon, we wanted to find a way to overcome the challenge of civic engagement in historically underrepresented communities.
Approach: Our team came up with Podemos, a Spanglish board-game-meets-app, where families could play each other for points and test or increase their knowledge of local politics. We won first place!
