National Day of Civic Hacking – 5/31- 6/1

With National Day of Civic Hacking quickly approaching, Smart Chicago has listed a variety of events taking place in Chicago.

One of the events is Civic Hack Day at the Adler Planetarium. The event  focuses on youth engagement. Young people participating in the Youth Civic Innovations and Hacking Initiative will pitch issues to hackers using websites they’ve researched, designed, and built. Other young people will participate in workshops hosted by Adler’s Youth Leadership Council, that position hacking as creative problem-solving.

Misha Malyshev and Teza Technologies work with Adler Planetarium on STEM initiatives and are proud sponsors of the Civic Hack Day event. Registrations are currently open online.

Other events highlighted by Smart Chicago include:

Participants are being encouraged to use #hackforchange on Twitter to help publicize the events and civic hacking projects.
