Our Theme:  After the Pandemic

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on the world, putting millions at risk of unemployment, poverty, and taking the lives of many. Lengthy quarantines have presented novel challenges in all facets of life: our economy, mental health, education, and more. But as more people get vaccinated, we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Moving forward, how can we use technology to recover and aid our transitions into post-pandemic life? And given what we have learned from this pandemic, how can we be better prepared for future disasters?

Donation:  This event will be raising money for Direct Relief, specifically their Covid-19 response. Direct Relief's Covid response has focused on providing critical medical resources to hard hit communities around the world, including vaccines, masks, and medications, as well as providing information and analysis to better aid policy decisions.
