Have a great idea for an app? Why not enter the House App Contest!
"This year marks the first annual Congressional Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Academic Competition, the “House App Contest.” This new competition is designed to engage student’s creativity and encourage their participation in STEM education fields. Established by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2013, this competition is a nationwide event that allows high school students from across the country to compete by creating and exhibiting their software application, or “app,” for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice. Throughout the completion period, participating students will be provided opportunities to engage with various STEM educational partners located within the community to mentor and assist them with their app development."
This competition is open to high schoolers whose House representative has opted into the program. If you live in Coronado your representative is Scott Peters which makes you eligible to compete! You have until April 30th to submit your app. You can submit individually or in teams of up to 4 people.
