Students Encouraged by Government to Develop Apps

As part of an initiative to get U.S. kids to compete with other nations in math and science, The House of Representatives has passed a resolution that is challenging U.S. students to develop apps for competition.

The Academic Competition Resolution of 2013 explains, “Rapid technological change means the competition will evolve over time and will challenge students in specialized areas of science, technology, engineering and math to ensure maximum participation. Because of the importance of computer science, it would be appropriate to initially challenge students to develop so-called ‘apps’ for mobile, tablet, and computer platforms.’
