You are invited to attend our 2nd session today in the SAC office@ For more information or if you have any questions, please see Mrs. Grossmann or stop by the SAC office.
On Saturday, April 22nd, the Computer Science Club and Young Entrepreneurs Club co-hosted MontyHacks, MHS's first annual hackathon. There were over 60 participants, 20 volunteers, and 15 mentors. Students from 15 different high schools gathered at MHS for this day-long event and 25 apps were built. The first overall prize went to a pair of MHS students who built a headset that analyzes and documents different aspects of the user's mental state. It was a great success and they hope you can participate next year!
