  • The U.S. Geological Survey would like your help with generating infographics, interactive visualizations, and a game related to critical minerals and rare earth elements (REE).
  • Create an infographic of the minerals used in mobile devices
  • Finish designing this Rare Earth Element REE Game with source code on Github
  • Create interactive visualizations of the historical mineral & material commodities data extracted from these scripts in an iPython notebook posted at on GitHub at cdiesip-skunkworks/CriticalMinerals
  • Skills/Languages: Python, JavaScript, Tableau, graphic design skills
  • Tech to address the justice gap. Creating a Step by Step site for filling out legal forms  (government benefit forms/court motions) for those with low literacy. 
  • Intro Data Science Friendly Project : Anastasia Kaiser
  • Possible ideas: Figure out how many of 538's Riddler probability puzzlers we can solve by coding or work on a Kaggle competition together
  • Languages: R, Python, or whatever people prefer
  • Goal: give an opportunity for people interested in data science of all levels to get together, meet, and work on a project (I'm pretty new to hackathons and know this doesn't fit the traditional definition of creating an app, but wanted to see something data science focused + something friendly to beginners.) 
  • Ideas: use dataset from Kaggle or Driven Data to analyze the data and create a model.  Would prefer to use python.
  • Idea : An app to find people who read the same kind of books, or love the same author and meet. 
  • PS: Any feedback, suggestion or critic is welcome! Please do not hesitate!  
  • Teacher Share
  • I'm going to be a floating mentor at the event, but if anyone has ideas or wants to take this on, let me know :smile: 
  • probably a mostly front end project
  • app finds best/cheapest/closest happy hour
  • track your car maintenance and mechanic receipts to know when things have been done or need to be done next
  • crowdfund birthday presents

  • Shopping Checkout Cart Project: Violet Cullors, Maya K, and Tammy Barbee
  • An app that will allow user to type in the items and the purchase amount 
  • Create a design of the shopping checkout cart
  • Goal: User will see a print out the items listed and the total cost which will include the shipping cost for domestic and international. This amount will be in the money format
  • Languages: Python
