Welcome to the 2015 Congressional App Challenge!
This year marks the second annual Congressional Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Academic Competition – the Congressional App Challenge.
Recognizing how essential STEM skills are for economic growth and innovation, the Congressional App Challenge was established by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2013. The Challenge is a nationwide event that allows U.S. high school students to compete against their peers by creating and exhibiting their software application, or “app,” for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice. This competition is intended to promote student engagement in STEM fields and to encourage them to pursue skills that will serve them throughout their careers.
Next Wednesday, September 2 at 2:00 pm IEF will be hosting an information session for Congressional staff and private sector stakeholders on the Hill. This meeting will be an opportunity to learn about the plans for the next Congressional App Challenge and how to get involved. We’ll go over the Challenge timeline, goals, and best practices. […]
