Congratulations to the Englewood High School SmartLab Hackathon team! This was Englewood's first year competing in the AT&T Aspire Mobile App Hackathon. They came away with 3rd place overall, and 1st place in Sphero app development. Englewood SmartLab Facilitator Bill Gilmore wrote this about the team's experience:
"We are all absolutely wiped out after 30 hours of intensive trial-by-fire coding fun, networking and team-building. We went into this absolutely cold with no real understanding of what to expect, and absolutely intimidated after the first two hours of the event. After getting over our initial shock and awe, everyone settled in and our students did themselves and the District proud!"
Here's the promotional video the team created for their Sphero app:
