Rat Relay for Global Good March 2018

Want to try out design thinking? Work in a multidisciplinary team and collaborate globally? Then this 36-hour hackathon is for you!

Rat Relay is a three-day design thinking hackathon organized by the Design Factory Global Network. Each Design Factory brings a sponsored challenge that is rotated around the world before returning back home – just like in our interconnected world today, tasks are shared and split between teams working together near and far. The challenges are tackled in six 6-hour slots following the design thinking process: emphatizing, (re)defining, ideating, prototyping, testing and pitching solutions. The Rat Relay is open to everyone, and your welcome to join any 1 to 6 slots! However, you need to register beforehandand to commit to attending the full six hours of your chosen slot(s).

What’s in it for you?

Learn to collaborate locally in a multidisciplinary team

Experience global collaboration first-hand

Get familiar with the design thinking process and some of the practices used at each stage

Have fun while addressing meaningful issues faced by real people around the world
