Have a great idea for an app or technology for education? Looking for the next project that is tough but super satisfying to work on? Come spend 54 hours collaborating and building.
I'm Nihal. I work on staff at Teach For America (user experience + biz analysis role on an extranet) and on the side have been organizing a Startup Weekend EDU (focused on Education). Since I am deeply passionate about solving problems in the ed space (both through my work and four years of teaching in the classroom) I think events such as Startup Weekend hold a lot of potential for sparking solutions to tough problems... bringing together tech folks with CMEs.
It's a great way to get an idea or company off the ground or simply meet people who are actively in the edtech space and spend a weekend contributing to help solve tough problems with your ux eye!

Hi! I am also a full-time Teach For America staff member and will be attending. I know at least a few others who have attended and by all accounts it should be a great experience. Drop me a line if you want more info.
