Our 3rd annual hackathon was a major success full of coding and quackery!
We had 90 participants and 27 teams with attendees from every school in the district. The winning team, Branham’s Matt Fellenz and Kevin Toren, created an app to turn handwriting into Google documents along with scraping from Google Drive. Six other Branham students were in the top 5 teams: Sherry, Eric, Cooper, Evelyn, Nathan, Tevin, Justin, Brad.
The event occurred on Sunday march 20th from 9am – 9pm. Bionic Bruin alumnus and current Branham students taught coding workshops to participants. Thanks to Figma and PTSA we were able to provide both lunch and dinner to all attendees and volunteers. We also gave rubber ducks to all participants so they could rubber ducky debug. We were delighted by the creativity and ingenuity of the entries.
Thank you to all those who participated or helped to make our event happen in any capacity. We hope to see you next year!
