Projects (more projects can be found on my Github)

HackUCI 2020

I helped build Zodiac Maze, a Unity 2D maze game that is Lunar New Year Themed! There are 11 different mazes that represents each zodiac animal except the rat. The player is the rat whose goal is to deliver the red packet to their friendly zodiac animal somewhere in the maze. More points are awarded for faster completion. This was my first time using Unity for a hackathon project, and I built the game logic and camera controls using C#.

SB Hacks 2020

I helped create Flare , a web app that can detect forest fire on a map. We read in temperature data via Ardiuno Uno and then use Python to serialize the data in order to insert into Firebase. Then we utilized a React Frontend and the Google Maps API to detect increased level of C02 or temperature.
