WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) announced that a total of 10 submissions were received for the Congressional App Challenge (CAC) from the 15th District of Texas. The CAC is a district-wide competition to encourage middle school and high school students from each Congressional district to learn to code and inspire them to pursue careers in computer science and other Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields.
“I am proud of the young students that want to learn more about STEM and extremely impressed by their work product,” said Congressman Gonzalez. “I have no doubt that the future of America is bright because of students like these. I will continue advocating for increased learning opportunities for all students and resources that will lead them to success.”
The apps covered a diverse array of subjects and introduced creative solutions to everyday issues covering:
- Public Safety
Since 2016, this annual competition has provided an opportunity for students across the nation to create original innovative apps for a chance to win the CAC.
The Congressional App Challenge is sponsored by the Internet Education Foundation (IEF). The nationwide event allows students from across the country to compete against their peers by creating and exhibiting their software application for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice.
