Newark high school student wins 10th District Congressional App Challenge
by Brick City Live Staff/December 9, 2016
Today, Congressman Donald M. Payne, Jr. announced the winner of the 2016 Congressional App Challenge for high school students in New Jersey’s 10th Congressional District. Ayobami Adewale of Bard High School Early College Newark was named the winner for his language-learning app, Learning Chinese.
“The Congressional App Challenge showcases the innovation and technical skills of New Jersey students, and I congratulate Ayobami on winning this year’s competition,” said Payne, according to a statement. “His success is a reminder that we must continue to invest in STEM education to ensure that young people can learn, create, build, and pursue innovative careers that are essential to the economic future of our nation.”
The annual Congressional App Challenge is meant to highlight the value of STEM education by encouraging high schoolers to learn to code by creating their own apps. Competition entries were judged by a local panel based on the quality and implementation of the idea, plus demonstrated excellence of coding skills.
