The second annual Hackathon attracted more than two dozen Computer Science students, allowing them to build their resumes and gain a competitive edge through hands-on, real-world project experience. They each contributed to open source code and learned to develop software collaboratively on project teams.  

Gloria Rogiers, Computer Science chair, and Todd Warner, Workforce Innovation executive in residence, teamed up with Manifest Solutions to host the Hackathon on November 2 in WD. Twenty Manifest Solutions consultants paired with the students and taught them new ways to approach problems. The process exposed students to new tools and practical techniques from the workplace.

The Columbus State Employer Engagement & Experiential Learning (EEEL) group presented on a variety of additional opportunities for students to gain hands-on experience through internships, work-study programs, and other employer engagement.  EEEL is focused on providing recurring opportunities for CSCC students to get relevant career experience through collaboration with academic departments and employers.
