(Restricted to Stanford University members)

Three ways to apply:

  • Choose a problem, form a team
  • Come with a self-selected problem and/or technology, form a team. We find a sponsor (email the teaching team to discuss)*
  • Apply as an individual, indicating your preferred problems. If accepted we will help you join a team.

*Preformed teams have precedence over individual applicants

Apply forming a team around our list of curated problems

We continue to curate the problems for the Hacking for Climate and Sustainability cohort from across the Community. Check back in for updates as we add more problem statements!  See the team formation link to help find teammates. 

Apply with a technology

We encourage applicants with a technology to apply. If you have a technology, please email us to make sure that it is appropriate for the class. We will work with you to find an appropriate sponsor as well as additional teammates.

Apply as an individual

It is possible to apply as an individual to the class. Please fill out the application and submit it and, if accepted, we will help you find a team that is like minded on a problem that you expressed interest in working on. Preference is given to teams before individuals. It is recommended to try to join a team.  Email the teaching team if you have questions.
