To make preschool children aware of sustainability issues (e.g. paper waste) and to develop alternative usages, an inclusive method of learning and finding solutions such as organising a hackathon can be very effective.
How to organise a hackathon with preschool classes and lower primary?
We suggest we all try Vanessa Dubois' method in the following weeks. This will allow us to share our concrete experiences and together enrich the proposed process to make it even better for the whole community.
What we would like the community to work on :
How to design and run a successful hackathon?
What do we need in order to help pupils participate fully in a hackathon process?
What materials would teachers need to start a hackathon from scratch?
What are the resources we need to develop together to help each other?
What are the types of hackathon we can run in a classroom?
How long should a hackathon take to do?
But let's start from experience.
