CodeAcross Challenges:

Code for Tulsa Projects:

1. Civic Ninja’s Citizen Power Brigade
The project idea is to enlist owners of hybrid vehicles to create mobile charging stations when a natural disaster has caused widespread power outages.  Learn more at the Civic Ninjas website.

2. Balance + EBTAround.Me
We’ll be discussing ways to improve the delivery of SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) services, throughout the city and state.  Using previous local research, leveraging two Code for Tulsa projects already near completion, and working collaboratively with other local nonprofit agencies, we hope to help those who are receiving food stamp benefits.

3. Healthy Food Survey
We’ll be working with OSU CNEP to write up a user research interview script based on Fogg Behavior Model to conduct at Good Samaritan Health Service clinic sites over the weekend. We will report what we learn about their patients’ motivation and ability to eat healthy nutritious foods.

It’s happening in about 50 cities, all over the world in places like Curitiba, Brazil; Melbourne, Australia; San Francisco, California; Zagreb, Croatia and…Tulsa!

The weekend of February 20-22, 2015, Code for America will hold its fourth annual CodeAcross event. CodeAcross is a weekend of civic hacking events hosted by nodes of the Code for America network around the world. The goal of CodeAcross is to activate the Code for America network and inspire residents everywhere to get actively involved in their community.

Here in Tulsa, we’re once again partnering with the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) student chapter at TU  and we’ve got some exciting projects and activities for coders and non-coders alike.

 

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
