Middle School Hackathon – April 2, 6th to 8th Graders

Hackathon Flyer Hackathon Flyer– PDF

Hi, I’m Isabelle Gallagher, a junior at TJ High School for Science and Technology, an Eagle Ridge Middle School alum, and a lifelong Broadlands resident.

We’re holding the first ever Loudoun County Middle School Hackathon on Saturday, April 2, 2016 at Eagle Ridge Middle School.  It’s a day long activity for students to learn coding in teams and work together to solve coding challenges, develop apps, and learn from each other and the coaches.  We’re strongly encouraging beginners to give coding a try in a supportive environment.

It’s important for kids to be exposed to coding early, before they think either they can’t code or wouldn’t like it.  The hackathon is an opportunity for that.

Registration is free, but space is limited.  For information and registration, go to www.loudouncodingclub.wix.com/coding. For questions, email loudouncodingclub@gmail.com.

10th National Prescription Drug Take-Back

DEA_TakeBackDayThe DEA’s10th National Prescription Drug Take-Back will take place September 26 from 10am to 2pm at the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Offices in Chantilly and Sterling.

Take-Back sites will be collecting unwanted, unneeded or expired prescription drugs for safe disposal. You do NOT need to bring medication in the original prescription container. Protect your privacy – put them in another container (a plastic bag) or remove the prescription label.

The National Prescription Drug Take-Back addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, abuse and accidental poisonings.  Many Americans do not know how to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away – both potential safety and health hazards.

Nearly 2.5 tons of drugs were collected in the previous nine Take-Back events.
