A growing trend in education right now involves submerging students into an authentic, real-world challenge and seeing what they can do.

These challenges live in the intersection space between full blown robotics competition and a hackathon.

For the 2016-2017 school year, Rockhurst students thrived in two of these events. Check them out!

46 students participated in the entrepreneural event called the MECA Challenge.

Students in the AP Computer Science Principles class will compete in the SensED IOT Challenge in April of 2017.
