Resaca Middle SchoolLos Fresnos, Texas
Hello Navi
Teacher: Maggie Bolado

The all-girl middle school team from southern Texas had their blind classmate in mind when they designed Hello Navi. They noticed he often had trouble navigating the hallways in school, especially during the hectic few minutes when students were changing classes. The app concept they created earned them the title of Best in Nation in 2014 – and that was just the beginning. The team was featured in numerous media stories, including in People Magazine, on CNN and on MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Show. They were invited to present their app at the White House Science Fair, where they met President Obama. Their story was featured in the Verizon ad campaign, CreaFuturo, and their story was even made into a documentary. See it in Spanish here:
