A hack-a-thon is a structured brainstorming event that brings a group of individuals together to solve a problem or develop new ideas. Participants are divided into groups, given a question and a time limit. The group develops a solution to the problem and all the solutions are “pitched” back to the group at the end of the hack-a-thon.
