Tim Cook Scholarship Winners

Apple issues over 350 scholarships to students leading up to WWDC each year, which affords them the chance to head out to California and spend time with Apple engineers and other developers.

The video, which almost looks like it was edited with Apple's Clips app, highlights a few different students and their apps. Some of their projects include a Swift Playground that works with Apple Pencil, an educational app for tutors and students, and a health app that reminds you to put on sunscreen based on the UV index.
