Johns Hopkins Public Health Hackathons

In 2018, Shared_Studios collaborated with Johns Hopkins University to bring together students in Baltimore, Beirut, and Gaza through virtual-exchange “hackathons.”

Students form teams through the Portal and work as one unit to solve a problem related to public health. The hackathon teaches participants transferable design skills as they tackle challenges facing refugee communities in Beirut and Gaza,  emphasizing cultural literacy, teamwork, and design thinking
