Gilman Hackers Take Top Prizes

Gilman students were in the top two winning teams in the recent McDonogh Hackathon. The theme for the Hackathon was food, and teams were given 24 hours to design a website or a game relating to that topic. Teams of five were made up of students paired from several schools. Judges were industry professionals.

Skipping sleep to take advantage of the full time allotment, Gilman seniors Ehren Dietrick and Aidan Radinsky came up with the concept and developed a functioning prototype while other team members worked on maps and music. Their Food Pyramid game took first place in the Hackathon.

Second place was won by a team that included Gilman freshmen Connor Basham and Charlie Dietrick.

Well done, boys!
