Apple on Thursday once again highlighted some of the winning projects from its annual Swift Student Challenge.
The event, which Apple holds annually ahead of WWDC, tasks young developers with creating innovative, three-minute projects in Apple's Swift Playgrounds app.
That includes a short game, created by Brazilian developer Henrique Conte, in which players must help a young developer escape from a cave within the Touch Bar.
Twenty-one-year-old Louise Pieri created designed a playground project called Meep, inspired by parallel universes and her own journey as a transgender woman.
Renata Pôrto created a Swift playground called Polar Patterns, which "helps people learn more about mathematical roses and generate their own visual art."
Apple says that the Swift Student Challenge is "an opportunity for student developers to showcase their love of coding by creating their own Swift playground." The 350 selected winners, who Apple says hail from 60 different countries and regions this year, receive a WWDC jacket and pin.
