Who helps us JAM?

The focus of the jam is doing, not talking...but we know it can be intimidating to start from a blank canvas. We'll have a great set of speakers and mentors familiar with the design process, to help guide you throughout the jam and get you moving in the right direction.

Below are our 2016 speakers and mentors. Info on 2017 will be posted after February 12, 2017.
