Hacktivity Kits and Modular Curriculum

We’re in the process of creating Hacktivity Kits for each of our software tools and for a variety of event types.

And we have #StoryCamp liftoff!

While we had specific goals, we also had a lot of ideas that aren’t in scope for this phase of the Challenges Project. Those ideas deserve some [&hellip
