Students Hack the Future of Education

Student team Rae Milne, Mini Kim, and Chris (Rae’s husband) took away the Student’s Choice Award for “MiniStories,” their contribution to the National Day of Civic Hacking.

Mini Kim posts some insider photographs on the process, and Fast Company covers the day:

At the EDesign hackathon, having students in the room where educational futures are being dreamed up made for a great reality check. I was seated next to one of the youth judges, Davon Pearsall-Evans, a senior at Flushing High School in Queens. "The WavePool was so cool," he said. "And something like MiniStories–you could have so many uses for it from first grade all the way to high school."

Congrats to all!
