Spotify’s Music Education Hack

Spotify and the NYC Department of Education teamed up for a Music Ed Hack to see how technology and music can transform education in NYC schools.  The hacker teams will have access to NYC teachers as part of the creation process as they focus on building products that incorporate music and technology into the education space.  The hackers will present their work at the end of the weekend to a panel of judges including NYC Digital’s own Strategic Partnerships Manager, Seema Shah.  The grand prize is $10,000 in cash.

The event will be this weekend, June 28-29 at AlleyNYC.
