Young Minds Learn to Hack the Future

The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians hosted nearly 60 students from all over the state and country this week as part of its first “Hack the Future,” an event that encourages young coders, entrepreneurs and engineers to solve real-life problems using advanced technologies provided to them.

The Office of Economic Development coordinated and came up with the event. John Hendrix, the office’s director, said the idea came after recruiting new industry to the region and seeing a need for the program.
