Mexicali kids shine in the Makey Makey science competition sponsored by US Consulate Tijuana and Garage Hub

At the annual #Cruce2PM tech and innovation event, Mexicali public school students presented their creative and problem-solving projects using JoyLabz-provided Makey Makey toys used to teach kids to code.

A panel of judges including Will Ostick, Consul General in Tijuana, as well as representatives of Innovation Labs, Skyworks, Honeywell, and Baja California’s Educational System, evaluated the science projects on themes such as social impact, functionality and creativity. Each team pitched their projects and were mentored by a teacher and an innovation expert from Garage Hub.

A special congratulations to students from Profesor Emilio Miramontes public school and their teacher Alma Cebreros for their winning project “E.M.O. Sport”. The winning teacher received a scholarship to attend the Institute of the America’s STEM Teacher Training camp this summer in La Jolla, California.
