Local Students Create Mobile Crime App

Del Mar Times, November 2016

High-crime areas are unfortunately becoming a reality.  To help find safe driving routes, a team of students at The League Of Amazing Programmers has created a new app Steer Clear San Diego.  The app computes relative danger of a designated route based on local crime data bases.  Mentored by teacher Site Mao, the app was written by  Ruoya Yan,  Matthew Smith, Ryan Nemiroff, TJ Gascho and Nicholas Contreras as  part of their level 6 “social good” project.
