- Quickly explain what a hackathon is and what kinds of things you did at the hackathon.
- What idea did you decide to work on? Explain it and give some details. Think about your STAR poster and make sure you include this information:
a. Situation–What problem or complaint would your idea solve?
b. Task: Basically, what are you trying to do?
c. Actions: What are the steps or things you need to do to carry out your plan?
d. Results: What kind of results do you want? How will you know if you succeed?
3. Why do you think your idea would be a sustainable one? Talk about these things:
a. Ecology: Would it be good for the environment?
b. Economics: Could SSIS afford it?
c. Politics: Would the leaders at SSIS agree to it?
d. Culture: Would it fit with people’s cultures (the way people think, feel, and behave) at SSIS.
4. How well do you think your group did on developing and presenting your idea? Did you get a green, yellow, or red light? Why?
As you Know the grade 5 is working on a project called the Hackathon. A hackathon is when you work together and brain storm Ideas and develop it.
For our Hackathon we chose more international food because a lot of the students here don’t even eat lunch and when you’re not full you can’t learn that well. If the parents come and volunteer the parents would know what there kids like so they will make it.
We had to do something called S.T.A.R S Stands for situation, T stands for task, A stands for actions and R stands for results.
SITUATION:The situation is that students don’t eat there lunch so they can’t listen really well in class.
TASK: The task was to make people full so we can learn better in class. We can also get better a memory and listening.
ACTION:The action is to ask parents from other countries to make international foods. Survey the students for what food they like
RESULTS:The results are that the children will start eating again because the food fits them.
ECOLOGY:Our’s is a sustainable Idea because if the food doesn’t fit them or is bad then they will throw it away. If the students throw away then there’s going to be a lot of food waste. If the students like it then they are going to eat all of the food and not waste that much food.
ECONOMICS:The caterers can earn more money because some people will not buy lunch because the food doesn’t
