Curriculum hackathons are two day intensive events where individuals come together to develop a module that will form part of the Sky School curriculum. All "live" hackathon opportunities will be posted on this page. We will be posting a number of hackathon opportunities over the next 12 months.
Check out this video, which features participants at our first hackathon hosted by UWC South East Asia to find out more about what happens at a hackathon:
WHAT ARE WE DEVELOPING?
Only 23% of refugee youth have access to secondary education worldwide. At Sky School, we are developing a social entrepreneurship module which forms part of the wider Sky School Diploma, an innovative curriculum which will enable refugee and displaced youth aged 16-26 to access transformational learning at secondary level through a blended (online and offline) learning approach. You can learn more about the Sky School approach here.
WHAT IS A CURRICULUM HACKATHON?
A curriculum hackathon is an intensive facilitated weekend workshop where individuals from different backgrounds come together to create a new module for the Sky School curriculum. The social entrepreneurship module will be launched in Amman, Jordan; Kakuma, Kenya and Amman, Jordan later this year.
