This Saturday, W+K Tomorrow and the Portland Incubator Experiment hosted a hack day for Portland Public Schools. Emerging from the GOOD Ideas for Cities event in February, the hack aimed to make some of the ideas more tangible. It was also the first move in an attempt to get the 85% of Portlanders who don’t have school age kids more involved with public schools.
Mayor Sam Adams kicked off the day at 10am. We had a great turnout – a good mix of representatives from the City and the school system, people from some of the key organizations supporting schools, and a healthy dose of developers.
