Spring 2017

We kicked off this year with our second Spring Program & Showcase Finale Event featuring presentations by 24 teams from 5 different program sites at the Newkirk Alumni Center at UC Irvine.

With nearly 120 middle school students this year from Valadez Middle School Academy in Placentia, Walton Intermediate Boys & Girls Club of Garden Grove, Irvine Intermediate Boys & Girls Club of Garden Grove, Advanced Learning Academy in Santa Ana and Rancho San Joaquin Middle School in Irvine, judges had an incredibly tough task to select 4 four winners to take the prize. In addition to the friendly judging competition, this year saw two fan favorite voting awards, Best App and Best Poster.

1st Place: Team Saffire (Walton Intermediate - Boys & Girls Club of Garden Grove)
2nd Place: Coding Wolves (Advanced Learning Academy)
3rd Place: Fantastic Four + Al (Irvine Intermediate - Boys & Girls Club of Garden Grove)
