Posted: March 22nd, 2017

Saturday, April 22, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Centennial High School, 4300 Centennial Ln., Ellicott City

Students from all Howard County high schools are invited to compete in the HoCo Hacks computer coding competition.

Students may compete in teams of two–three or individually. Competitors vie to complete a coding challenge based on a theme to be presented at the event. Participants work through the allotted time period to create original projects, software or hardware (less common). Products will be judged on complexity, relevance to the theme, creativity, practicality and intangible factors. Lunch, dinner and snacks will be provided for the participants.

Prizes will be awarded to the winners. The event will feature a lecture on programming principles from Dr. Lisa Singh, a professor of computer science at Georgetown University.
