WEF SPONSORS ENGINEERING HACKATHON 

Over 120 5th-8th grade students participated in the 1st Annual Wiseburn Engineering Hackathon Challenge on November 4, 2017.  Keynote speaker, Khali Cannad, promoted diversity in engineering and encouraged students of all backgrounds to pursue STEM college and career pathways.  Collaboration, team work and problem solving were a major focus of the Hackathon activities. Groups of students were guided through the engineering process of building a moving vehicle capable of carrying communication and emitting noise or sound.
