THE BRONX - Some Bronx students are taking part in an interactive after-school program that trains them to become hackers.

CampInteractive President and CEO Craig Meisner says the term "hack" is misunderstood. Meisner says the term means going out and solving problems using technology.

Students participating in the program spent last weekend participating in a "hack-a-thon," in which they presented real educational problems to groups of professionals in the field. The students then watched the professionals work to solve the problems using computer technology.
