Congressional App Challenge
Congressman Neguse invites all middle and high school students to participate in the Congressional App Challenge! https://www.congressionalappchallenge.us/ This is an excellent opportunity to engage students in STEM and to make learning fun – it also looks great on a resume! Last year’s winner, Andrew Woen, will tell you that winning the challenge changed his life. After winning, he was invited onto news stations, panel discussions, and he received $1000 to further develop his app. All participants will have the opportunity to showcase their apps to local professionals, and all will have the chance to virtually meet Congressman Neguse. Apps are due on October 19, 2020.
To assist students in participating in the App Challenge, Congressman Neguse is hosting a virtual “App-a-thon” where students, teachers, and coders are invited and work together to create apps for the challenge. The App-a-thon will take place on October 8, 2020 from 3pm – 6pm. Students may register for the challenge by going to www.NeguseAppChallenge.com (If any non-students on this email would like to volunteer for coding support during the App-a-thon, please email me ASAP.)
The Schedule for the App-a-thon is as follows:
3pm -4pm: Panel discussion and Q&A
Our panel will include:
