WEST VALLEY CITY — Hunter High School could have been mistaken for Silicon Valley on Friday morning.

Students worked to assemble computers from parts in the Fastest Geek Contest.

Tanner Foy assembled an operating computer from parts in the least amount of time and was awarded with a “loaded” tablet computer.

Alex Ford and Will Rees took second and third place.

As a bonus, every participant will get to keep the computer they attempt assemble, all of which will be equipped with the new Windows 8.1 operating system.
