Dublin High School Students Win Dreammakers & Risktakers Award

October 18, 2018

PLEASANTON, CA–Thanks to a #BulletinFromGoogle story created earlier today by Dublin High School teacher Eugene Chou (full Bulletin story here) we’re able to share a couple of highlights from the Dreammakers & Risktakers Award luncheon held earlier today in Pleasanton. Dublin High School students Neha Harpanhalli and Christy Koh won the award for their creating the mobile phone app “Stay on Course” which is currently in production at Dublin High to help students track their progress for graduation requirements. The app started as an engineering class project several years ago and is now a released product.

“The Dreammakers and Risktakers luncheon salutes student innovators from the Tri-Valley region whose ideas hold the promise to change the world. It showcases the talent and bravery of the next generation, and gives the opportunity for civic leaders to recognize them.” (source)
