This past weekend, New Leaf Digital sponsored Sachin Katyal and Tyler Williams' high school hackathon, which took place at the Randolph School. Over 40 high schoolers participated and built space-themed innovations using a variety of software languages and frameworks including Python, Unity, and Scratch. http://www.hackhsv.com
New Leaf Digital brought 15 mentors, speakers, and judges to help facilitate the event. The New Leaf crew included a number of senior software engineers, along with a mechanical engineer from NASA and a couple members of New Leaf Digital's management team.
In the end, the team that won built a plant management system for managing vegetation on a flight headed toward Mars. Check it out: https://alextigernick.github.io/UAMS/home.html
