Once the demos completed, the kids broke up into small groups and were challenged with designing a gadget for the Ratchet & Clank universe. The winning groups received copies of the new Ratchet & Clank PlayStation game.      

The Junior Ranger event was attended by 130 students from the Downey School District who have implemented Project Lead the Way (Project Lead the Way is a United States 501 non-profit organization that develops STEM curricula for use by elementary, middle, and high schools) and have also started a “Femineers” program to encourage girls to learn and interact more with engineering and science. An additional 15-20 kids came from LA Makerspace program, which, like Project Lead the Way, is a non-profit organization focused on increased access to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) for low-income children, youth, and families.
