Congressional App Challenge

I am pleased to announce that my office is participating in the 2020 Congressional App Challenge – a competition aimed at encouraging U.S. high school students to learn how to code by creating their own applications.

Forbes recently ranked Baltimore as fifth on the list of emerging startups cities.

The 7th District’s unmistakable talent and proximity to DC /New York, have helped turn it into a major hub of early-stage tech on the East Coast.

The U.S. House of Representatives knows how valuable these STEM-related skills are, and wants to encourage students to engage in these fields. By encouraging and recognizing our Nation’s young programming talent, Congress hopes to shine a light on the growing importance of these skills.

The Challenge is intended to highlight the value of computer science and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education.

  • The Challenge ends on October 19, 2020. We strongly encourage students of all skill levels to participate and learn how to create their own apps.
