CNMI Public School System students Chenoa Bunts-Anderson and Daniel Villarmero of Marianas High School recently showcased their winning app, The Student Companion, to members of U.S. Congress and representatives of the technology industry at the national House of Code conference in Washington, D.C.
The conference lasted a total of two days, from April 12 to 13, 2018.
In addition to their app showcase, Bunts-Anderson and Villarmero, along with over 215 middle and high school students from across the nation, gathered at the U.S. capitol to engage in conferences that focused on topics related to computer science and technology.
This was the first time CNMI students have participated in the congressional app challenge, which aims to inspire, include, and innovate efforts around STEM, coding, and computer science education. (PR)
