Students were tasked to choose a book, and design a project that either illustrated the story of the book, allowed the user to see the world from the viewpoint of a character in the book, or implemented an interactive element of the story. The winning teams chose The Very Hungry Caterpillar; Percy Jackson, and Divergent.
The Hackathon was supported by volunteer mentors and judges from nearby tech companies Meta and Google, and prizes were donated by Xfinity. The event culminated in student demonstrations of their projects.
