How does Hacking for Defense work?
Students break into teams of 3-4, and each team receives a real-life problem statement from the military. Over the course of the semester, students work hand-in-hand with their problem sponsor as they interview as many people related to their problem as they can. Students continually develop their solution as they become experts on their topic. By the end of the course, students are required to have a minimum viable product (MVP) and/or prototype.
