A group of Belmont students, accompanied by a few recent alumni, Professor of Physics Dr. Scott Hawley and Professor of Mathematics Dr. Glenn Acree, participated in the third annual Hack-MT event last weekend. Hosted at MTSU, the event gathered over 250 students and 40 professional mentors from the developer community of Middle Tennessee to invent new web platforms, mobile apps and electronic gadgets. Students worked the entire weekend, some through the night, to prepare their presentations for Sunday’s exposition.
Many tech organizations were represented by their best and brightest developers on the lookout for talented students. The Belmont students in attendance included Ben Miner, Nick Chouard, Callie Deas, Tito Ebiwonjumi, Hannah Wright, John Ottenlips, Braden Carei, Daniel Gray, Sebastian Alegre and Aaron Itzkovitch. This weekend was an excellent opportunity for them to learn new things, practice their coding and programming skills and interact with students, faculty and industry professionals from across Middle Tennessee.
