Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Burton D. Morgan Foundation and Kent State University’s flight technology program by participating in the first ever collegiate, Aviation Hackathon.

Burton D. Morgan graduated in 1938 from Purdue with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and a love for aviation. In 1967, he started Burton D. Morgan Foundation to support those with entrepreneurial aspirations. Also in 1967, Kent State started the flight technology program. What better way of celebrating 50 years, then by partnering to sponsor an aviation hackathon?

College students 18 years of age or older from any university and any area of study are invited! The event will last from 5:00 p.m. Friday, October 13, 2017, through Sunday, October 15, 2017, with the closing ceremony at beginning at noon. Five challenges related in some way to the aviation/aeronautics industry will be presented. Over the course of the weekend, students will establish interdisciplinary teams, innovate, produce prototypes and pitch their ideas to a panel of judges for a chance to win financial awards and other incentives. The Burton D. Morgan grand prize is $10,000. In addition, each challenge stream will have a $1,000 winner. The event will be held on Kent State University’s campus in Kent, Ohio primarily in the Aeronautics and Technology Building (ATB).

The event is free to participants. Food will be provided.
