HACKATHON STUDENT RESOURCES

We have broken the learning down into 2 parts. The first section offers a series of downloads. Business plans, recent and past presentations, proposal templates, our business plan slide deck, even some downloaded posters from NASA (yes the real NASA). 

If you are looking for something specific and we don’t have it, just send us a message. I am sure we can help guide you. Part 2 features a few videos that we thought could be helpful. Enjoy.
