Competing teams, White House Tour vs New Arrivals Mondo, both collaborating with resources while picking the brain of one of our mentors. New Arrivals Mondo could potentially compete for both a Futuristas prize as an all women coding group AND the Playing Mondo sponsored prize.

Mentors and organizers conspire to make sure everyone stays fed. This event was a long time coming and we weren’t about to let a shortage of donations derail an epic event. First run of snacks may have ended but food already on the way!
