The Beginning



From 2013-2015, Experimental Civics founder Sarah Sharif worked with Sierra Club in the fight for clean air, leading communities in Texas, Arkansas, and Oklahoma to engage in community days of action and encouraging legislation in support of clean air.


Sarah assumed the positions of IT PM & Director of ATX Hack for Change within the St. Edward’s information technology department, where she helped bridge technology, education, nonprofits, and the community through human-centered design from 2015-2018.



Design Thinking / Ideation

Inspired to re-think problem-solving, Sarah completed Design Thinking workshops at Harvard, attended countless social innovation sessions from NYU Stern to SXSW, and began developing her own strategies for fostering innovation and empowerment.


In 2017, Sarah decided that it was time to put her training and experience into action and launched Experimental Civics to help clients and organizations extract ideas and bring them to life.

Ready to make a difference, Sarah launched Experimental Civics in May 2017 to facilitate the extraction and implementation of ideas for communities and organizations.




Inspired to lead the charge in producing profitable and sustainable solutions, Sarah began launching programs through Experimental Civics designed to tackle the world's most complex problems.

Life Sci Hack is an event which addresses issues ranging from public health to telemedicine, to drug discovery to life science education.

Coming up in 2020, Capsule is slated to be a world-record breaking event aimed at generating climate solutions.
