Hacking Lake Erie: Tech Competition Seeks Solutions To Water-Related Problems #Biohacking

Toolkits Erie Hack

Erie Hack is a competition focused on finding solutions to the environmental issues plaguing Lake Erie, Via Erie hack.io

The Erie Hack is a data and engineering competition that unites coders, developers, engineers, and water experts to generate enduring solutions to Lake Erie’s biggest challenges. The competition includes $100,000 in prizes for the most creative and effective hacks. Working from the challenge statements derived from ideation sessions with NASA representatives and regional stakeholders, teams are charged with creating digital tools, hardware innovations, and engineering solutions that build “the Blue Economy”: the emergent economic sector dedicated to the sustainable stewardship of bodies of freshwater around the globe. The Erie Hack provides regional high school students, college students, and professionals the opportunity to combine their own expertise with solid mentoring to create technologies with the potential to invigorate Lake Erie’s environment and economy.

The Erie Hack includes a number of hacking days and events across the Lake Erie Basin. The competition kicks off on February 23 with the official launch and concludes with the Water Technology Summit on May 2–3.
