2022 Scenario: TBD

Over the past 17 years, the MACCDC has innovated, developed, and sought to create an original experience for not only the student teams, but all participants. Introducing themes that imitate the world around us adds a dimension of realism and fun, while at the same time, highlighting real life issues: free and secure elections, natural disasters, a global pandemic.
