H2O Hackathon Uses Technology to Address the California Drought
September 26, 2015
Severe drought means Californians have to take action about how water is used now and in the future.
The H2O Hackathon on Friday, October 9, in Stockton asks participants, students and professionals, to help solve the water crisis with new technologies to eliminate wasted water. This is an opportunity to create water saving ideas through technology for home, workplace, garden, landscaping, agriculture and industry.
“Water is one of California’s most precious resources, and San Joaquin County is ground zero for many of the water challenges facing urban and agricultural communities throughout the State,” said David Nelson, Chairman, iHub San Joaquin. “The H2O Hackathon is a great platform for entrepreneurs, engineers, and innovators to come together and create solutions for San Joaquin’s most pressing water needs.”
This one-day event is presented in partnership with iHub San Joaquin, the University of the Pacific, and Delta College. Sponsors include Restore the Delta, San Joaquin Partnership, Cafe Coop, ACE (Altamont Corridor Express), San Joaquin County, City of Stockton, Delta Coalition, AG Spanos, California Water Service Company, and Visit Stockton.
For a great cause, and with great prizes, this hackathon challenge is not one to be missed! For more information or to register, visit www.h2ohackathon.org.
