Two teams from Hattiesburg High School participated in the inaugural iD 8 Hackathon at the University of Southern Mississippi on April 7-8. Teams were tasked with designing an app under the theme “Social for Good.” Each team produced an app prototype and presented it to a panel of three industry professional judges.

The students were also accompanied by mentors, Mrs. Beverly Creel and Dr. Elaine Dean, both STEM teachers from the high school.
