From California to Canada, hundreds of students from across the continent gathered in the buildings of Duke’s Engineering Quad to attend “Code for Good.” Unlike other collegiate Hackathons, participants in this competition spent 24 hours creating technological innovations targeted specifically at addressing some of our world’s most important current issues. Tracks this year included “Poverty and Inequality,” “Health and Wellness,” “Energy and Environment,” and “Education.” 

By noon on Sunday, 75 teams presented their creations, which just a day before had been mere ideas.
