At the same time, the products created by students during the Hackathon could become valuable tools to help California find solutions to some of the problems surrounding issues of water in the state. 
The Third-Annual H2O Hackathon will be held at the SJCOE on March 17. Approximately 100 teachers and students will be able to compete.
