Cole Spector (TRS Class of 2011) is a winner of the 2017 Congressional App Challenge with his App "Speech Timer". The Congressional App Challenge aims to engage students in coding and computer science. Over 4,100 students participated in the 14-week regional competitions. They submitted over 1,270 original student-created apps.
The Congressional App Challenge will invite winners from across the country to showcase their apps to the Members of Congress and members of the tech community at #HouseOfCode, a reception on Capitol Hill to be held in April 2018. Their work is eligible to be featured for one year on the permanent display in the U.S. Capitol Building and on the House.gov website. Each winning student will also be awarded $250 in Amazon Web Service credits, generously donated by Amazon Web Services.
Other great news for Cole is that he has been accepted at Duke University for next school year. Congratulations!!
