Kudos to our Laurel Branch Hackathon MAGIC’s Fourth Capture the Flag, Cybersecurity Competition third place winners: Leonid Burlachuk, Paul Chilcote, Jared Perdue and Andrew Valliere of UMUC Team-1. They discovered the clues, solved all the puzzles even with technical difficulties that slowed them down and beat the clock! More

 

Our Laurel Branch is also known for its  “green" features: solar energy, storm water management, charging stations for electric vehicles, living plant wall, recycling, green cleaning supplies, filtered water and energy efficient lighting.
