Students invited to participate in Congressional App Challenge
Congressman Brad Schneider recently launched the annual Tenth District Congressional App Challenge. The Congressional App Challenge encourages students to code their own app for any digital device by using their science, technology, engineering and math skills.
The deadline to register and submit an app is Nov. 1.
"In less than a generation, apps have come to touch every aspect of our lives. The Congressional App Challenge is an opportunity for 10th District students to demonstrate and develop their STEM skills by designing their own app and presenting their work on a national stage. I look forward to seeing the remarkable apps that this year's students create," Schneider said.
The winning teams will have their application displayed in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., and featured on Schneider's website.
The Congressional App Challenge is open to all middle or high school students who either live or attend school in the 10th District, regardless of skill level. Students can choose to participate individually or as part of a team of up to four students, as long as two of the team members meet eligibility requirements.
To enter, participants must upload a video showcasing their app and an explanation of what they learned throughout the app-making process.
More information and frequently asked questions on the Congressional App Challenge are available on Schneider's website, schneider.house.gov.
