BHS Students Win "Most Entrepreneurial" at New England Hacking Competition
A group of computer savvy Burlington High School seniors won a top mark at a New England region hacking competition this past weekend.
According to a post on BHS Principal Mark Sullivan’s blog, the five-member team won “Most Entrepreneurial” during the hackNEHS competition held at the Microsoft Sales and Technology Center here in Burlington on Saturday. The win garnered the students a $500 prize for each of them.
The team was made up of Aadil Islam, Mohammad (Saif) Shaikh, Brian Pukmel, Logan D’Auria and Souleiman Benhida, all seniors. Their winning entry was a Ping-Pong/Racquetball game played against the computer.
HackNEHS is a competition where teams work together to build software using many tools, APIs, and products. At the end of the event, judges provide feedback and prizes to the best hacks.
