Startup Weekend Education Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh, PA - Feb 20 6:30 pm to Feb 22, 2015 5:00 pm

Price: $1 to $50

Spend a weekend meeting new people and working hard to change education in Pittsburgh. Join educators, designers, developers and entrepreneurs who share your passion for innovation in education Feb 20 - 22, 2015.

Everyone is invited to contribute. Whether you design a tool for classroom use, help code a mobile app for informal learning, or brainstorm a new way to share curriculum, the field of education, and the city of Pittsburgh, will benefit from your experience.

If you’re passionate about education but not sure how to contribute- contact us! If you have a harebrained idea you think could never work- bring it! We’re here to help each other make things happen.

We’ll start the weekend off with a series of pitches, break into teams and see how far these ideas can come over a 54 hour period. Mentors will be on-hand to give feedback on work-in-progress, and top teachers and entrepreneurs will offer additional feedback and final judging of the result. Winning teams will get insight and support to move their education innovations forward.
