BOSTON, MA               

          Welcome to America's Datafest!
Hosted by the Technology for Social Change  Student Group at Harvard Kennedy School
     Do you want to work with policy researchers, computer programmers, local non-profits, and data scientists to solve some of the biggest challenges related to immigration?

Join us for a one-day event, America's Datafest, where you will form teams, brainstorm ideas, design prototypes, and present your solution - a mobile app, new product, business plan, or something  else entirely- that displays your insights on immigration issues.

We expect about 50 participants for our one-day event, but the Datafest will also be taking place in more than 20 cities and 12 countries around the world.  There will be food, and prizes for the winning teams.
