Lowcountry student awarded Apple scholarship award

Charleston County News

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) Porter-Gaud junior Charles Truluck received one of Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference scholarships.

Receiving this scholarship is no small feat, as the tech giant only awards 350 scholarships across the world.

To be eligible for the scholarship, students submit three essays and an app they worked on that demonstrated creative use of Apple technologies and runs on an Apple platform.

Truluck submitted two of his published app projects. The first uses tvOS. He used the addition of the tvOS App Store and decided to learn the framework by creating a calculator for your TV.

The second introduces people to the world of cryptography through a Swift playground. It provides an outlet to guide someone through the complex topic by showing both a demonstration and a text-based explanation.

I have had a boundless passion for computer science ever since my first website in 4th grade. I’m always trying to find new ways to create interest and share my knowledge of computer science with my community, says Truluck.

With this scholarship, Truluck will have the opportunity to meet with more than 1,500 Apple engineers and attend more than 100 technical sessions and hands-on labs at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June.
