Yesterday all of fifth grade did a hackathon, you’re probably wondering what is a hackathon? Well it’s an event where people work together to brainstorm ideas to make something better! Fifth grade thought about how we can make SSIS a better place! We split into groups by interest and my group was interested in improving the cafeteria food. We had to make a STAR poster, S for situation, T for task, A for action and R for results. Our star was that kids don’t eat their lunches because there is a small variation of foods and drinks so they get bored of the food. Therefore our task is to create a larger variation of cultural meals. To do so, we need to ask volunteers to help and survey kids for their food likings. If all this works well we won’t have any more hungry kids! Sadly we didn’t get chosen to pitch, I think one reason the teachers didn’t choose us was because this isn’t really sustainable and it doesn’t really help the environment. Economically though I thought we could of done it because the school has a little bit of extra money and we could even raise our own livestock on campus. This is legal, and it does not break any rules of campus, and this will produce a lot of foods around the world and sometimes like fro example muslims can’t eat pork so this will solve their problem. So that was the Hackathon!
