Congressman Pete Olson Stops by Clements High School to Recognize Congressional App Challenge Winners
FORT BEND ISD (Covering Fort Bend News) – Congressman Pete Olson stopped by Clements High School after school recently to recognize students that entered and won the Congressional App Challenge.
Sofie Marino and Norah Rami were named the winners of the Congressional App Challenge. The app they created, “See and Say,” helps tackle a problem across the U.S. and right here at home, human trafficking. The app allows users to easily, and anonymously, report suspected cases of human trafficking.
Congressman Olson also recognized Hannah Abraham and Divya Nagaraj, the runner-up winners of the app challenge. Their app helps young students learn the alphabet through an augmented reality game that users can access on a smartphone.
The Congressional App Challenge began in 2013 to encourage students to become more involved in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics fields, specifically in coding and computer science. The Challenge is open to all TX-22 high school students, and students can participate individually or in a team. The winning app will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol Building and on two websites, www.house.gov and https://www.congressionalappchallenge.us/. Learn more about theCongressional App Challenge.19
