The Friday Institute is a supporter of North Carolina’s Fourth Congressional District’s Congressional App Challenge competition, the most prestigious competition in computer science. North Carolina’s Fourth District is one of hundreds of participating districts and thousands of students nationwide.
Established by the U.S. House of Representatives in 2015, the Congressional App Challenge encourages middle and high school students from across the country to develop an innovative app for a mobile device or computer. The competition is designed to expose students to the world of app development without requiring prior coding experience. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from and network with leading STEM educators and employers from North Carolina’s 4th District, who will act as mentors and judges in the competition.
