The annual Congressional Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Academic Competition, or the “Congressional App Challenge” is a competition designed to engage student’s creativity and encourage their participation in STEM education fields. Established by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2013, Congresswoman Eshoo was the original co-chair of this competition and ran the pilot competition in 2014.
The Congressional App Challenge allows high school students from across the country to compete by creating and exhibiting their software application, or “app,” for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice. Throughout the competition period, participating students will be provided opportunities to engage with various STEM educational partners located within the community to mentor and assist them with their app development. The winners have their app displayed in the US Capitol Building and on House.gov for a year. Each winner/team also receives $250 in Amazon Web Services (AWS) Credits.
