Students at RIT took part in a global initiative with a twist, using technology to help solve problems through Hacking for Humanity.

The event is the fifth global event of Random Hacks of Kindness, an event that is made up of thousands of innovators in 30 countries.

RIT was a host site for the event where anyone could help develop solutions through technology that government, emergency responders and citizens can use to address common problems.

"A Hackathon is just coding and and marathon so we're going to be going for 24 hours here in The Center for Student Innovation at RIT," said Remy DeCausemaker, Research Associate for RIT. "Community members and students, industry folks are all going to be working together to solve problems for volunteer and aid workers around the world."

Global sponsors of Random Hacks of Kindness include NASA, Google, Microsoft and others.
