Students of Glen A Wilson win APP Challenge!
Posted 12/11/17

Congratulations to Kalvin Chang, Eric Siu and Darien Tsai for winning 1st Place Overall at the Congressional APP Challenge for the app they created, Aftermath, (math tutoring)!!!  They will be traveling to Washington D.C. this summer.

 

The Congressional APP Challenge (CAC) is a public effort to encourage kids to learn how to code, through annual district-wide competitions hosted by Members of Congress for their district.  This year, Ed Royce’s Congressional District (CA-39), had the largest number of entries of any congressional district in the United States.

 

Participating students code original applications for the chance to be selected for recognition by their Member of Congress, win prizes, and have their work put on display in the Capitol Building in Washington, DC.  The district-wide competitions, now in their 3rd year, take place from July through early November.  The CAC is executed by the Congressional staff to each participating district and coordinated by the Congressional Internet Caucus and the non-governmental sponsor of the project, the Internet Education Foundation. 

 

The mission of CAC is to inspire, include, and innovate efforts around STEM, coding and computer science education.
