- In the Health + Tech track, a student team partnered with Fresh Approach to work towards addressing systemic injustices that result in inequities and health disparities within communities of color in the Bay Area.

- In the Conservation + Tech track, a team of students partnered with Civic Design Studio to reimagine deteriorating city parks in Oakland, California to increase awareness and appreciation of the many cultural connections to urban-based biodiversity while also uplifting, improving, and renovating these spaces via new landscaping and other installations co-designed with community organizations and other local stakeholders.
