After completing the tour, Zoey and Shane will attend HackingEDU, the world’s largest education hackathon, outlining 3-5 actionable issues that arose from conversations on the tour. They will challenge the hackers in attendance to build solutions helping their peers around the country. Zoey and Shane will also report their findings more broadly so professors, pundits, politicians, and students can learn from their experience and conversations.
