Goucher College is planning a civic hackathon for the second weekend of April.

Register for “Coding for Community,” taking place April 11-13.

The hackathon, organized by the college’s graduate programs department, is looking for projects that include, but aren’t limited to, “apps, videos, websites, games [and] plans.”

Several ideas for civic hacks are suggested on the Coding for Community website — for example, a “program that matches refugee populations in Baltimore County with examples of artistic and cultural traditions that might typically be found in those communities” — but Goucher is currently accepting idea submissions on the event’s Facebook page.
