Rep Gibbs Announces Congressional App Challenge Winners
WASHINGTON, DC - Participating in the Congressional App Challenge for the second year in a row, Congressman Bob Gibbs announced the winners for Ohio’s Seventh Congressional District. A team of four students from Brunswick High School won for their app e-Cycle, an app that provides examples and methods for people to minimize their impact on the environment. The app is a game, allowing the user to earn plants in a digital garden for completing tasks in the real world.
Katie Scheutzow, Kara Nemet, Kelly Badowski, and Kaylee Hankey comprised the winning team. The students learned valuable team-building lessons on time management and task delegation.
“It is truly incredible to see how computer science, coding and programming have changed the world”, said Congressman Bob Gibbs. “The way Katie, Kara, Kelly, and Kaylee use their time and talents is impressive and inspiring. Their generation will lead the way in bridging the physical and digital worlds. In developing e-Cycle, the team blended artistic capabilities with technical skills to create a digital space for learning how to make an impact on our world. Congratulations to this remarkable team.”
