We're always excited to hear what our students are up to!

Here are some accomplishments shared by our students.

Rachel Voirin and Lauren Stark want to make the world a better place.

The senior duo won "Most Creative Innovation" at the 4th annual iCodeHack at the University of Texas at Dallas.

Their objective? Create an innovation that betters the world. They focused on water.

"Everyone is either directly or indirectly impacted by the current water crisis, and water is the foundation for all life," Voirin said. "Our goal was to make this global issue feel more personal. We wanted to emphasize that one person can make a difference."

After several hours of coding, Rachel and Lauren created a Python program and JavaScript app that educated users on regional water issues. The tool also provided tips everyone could make in their daily routine.
