2023 Scenario: TBD

Over the past 18 years, the MACCDC has sought to create an original experience for not only the student teams, but all participants. Introducing competition themes and scenarios that imitate the real world add a dimension of realism and fun, while at the same time, highlighting real life issues: free and secure elections, natural disasters, a global pandemic, to name a few.
