date for Hackathon

On March 25 - 26, 2022, geekspeak will be hosting our 5th annual Hack for Good hackathon.
This year our theme will revolve around mental health. While mental health has always been a major concern, the COVID-19 pandemic and the prevalence of so many social justice issues have pushed mental wellness to the forefront.

Our goal for Hack for Good: The Mental Health Project
is to provide a virtual space for teams to collaborate and build tools that can help people with mental health issues or assist healthcare professionals. Teams may choose to address awareness, education, access to services, patient care or other related areas. Hack for Good will be a virtual event once again. Teams will collaborate on the Hopin platform to create software prototypes that address Mental Health.

Last year, our Hack for Good: Body Hack
event had teams from across Canada working together to create prototypes to address a healthcare issue of their choosing. Participants created a wide variety of software and hardware prototypes, including one that used image recognition to assist the visually impaired, a supply management tool to assist hospitals, and a software app for the management of patient care.
