David Ban, 13, a student at Mount Logan Middle School, and his friends have a few years ahead of them before they’re full-time college students, but they certainly fit in with USU students on Saturday in a lecture hall for the school’s first-ever “hackathon.”

“I saw a poster and I wanted to do it because it sounded really cool,” said Ban, who admits he’s still learning the ropes of coding and hacking. “This felt like a good learning experience for me. Coding is easier to learn with more people.”
