History of HackXS.
The officers in Next Lab created HackXS this year. Many in Next Lab had participated and won in college hackathons. While it was intimidating for high schoolers to compete against college students, Next Lab members won and placed in the top three. All it took was creativity and hard work. NextLab wanted to help other high school students. HackXS was born to fill this goal. HackXS is the platform for students to showcase amazing ideas.
