Usage: It's great opportunity to share a problem and collaborate on a solution to. It's easy to have ideas but challenging to get other people to see if an idea can become a reality.

Strengths: It bringa people together across disciplines to solve real world problems. Beat things are made in collaboration and with a spark or an idea. See a need, try tI fix a need. Accept we don't have to fix it alone.

Suggestions for Improvement: 1. Add a video of previous startup weekends. It will let people get a hint in what it's like in the 54 hours. 2. A list of what countries they've held the weekend in to show impact effectiveness. 3. Talk about the reality of the success rate, to share reality and why my it's worth it.

Verdict: I could talk to my admin and staff about current problems in education and see if we can come up with a solution that would solve it as well add help others. If we believe in the idea and try to do something about it, whether it succeeds or doesn't, we at least can share are passion about trying to solve it.
