Collegiate School of Medicine and Bioscience, a magnet school in the city of St. Louis, will take home $10,000 after winning World Wide Technology's annual student hackathon.
Villa Duchesne and Mary Institute and St. Louis Country Day School won second and third place, respectively, and will take home $5,000 and $1,500, according to a release.
About 200 students from 20 high schools across the region participated in the Feb. 24 hackathon. They were tasked with creating a tech-based solution to solve a school or community problem. The Collegiate School of Medicine and Bioscience built a web platform for eighth graders unaware of their high school options as a way to address educational equity.
