The third summer of the 9-week ISE Coding Garage program came to a close last night, concluding with mobile app presentations and an awards ceremony. In early June, the program started with 15 self-driven students working on their own apps, and ended yesterday as 12 students presented their creations for judging. A new enhancement to this year's presentations was the judging app, created by one of the ISE interns, Jordan Pohlman.
The ISE Coding Garage had some incredibly talented high school students this year! The 2017 winners are:
- 1st Place: Kawther Rouabhi (lightleaf) receiving a $500 award.
- 2nd Place: Yegor Kuznetsov and Kalep McClenathan (Down to Earth) receiving a $250 award.
- 3rd Place: Lukas Anson and Misha Kuznetsov (Cook N' Shop) receiving a $100 award.
Thanks to the support of the University of Iowa's protostudios and ISE, every student that presented went away with award money. The additional presentation participants included:
- Musaab Ali (Clear Cut)
- George Liu, Hang Sun, and Charlie Zheng (Sticks & Stones)
- Jacob Morgan (Kitchen Helper)
- Ralph and Rudy Nahra (Ballr)
Several students have expressed interest in continuing to work on their apps with plans to publish to an app store.
