Students win first place in CLE Teen Hack Coding Competition

Members of our Be@uTech technology club brought home first place in the CLE Teen Hack Coding for Community: Civic Engagement Challenge in May! Students worked over the past nine weeks to design an app on civic engagement in anticipation of the RNC and the general election in November called CLETeenVote. Teams of students from different high school designed and coded different portions of the app while working with mentors, instructors and other assistants. The students used HTML, CSS, Ruby and JavaScript to create the final application for computers and mobile devices.

They were assigned mentors to guide them through the process, and their designs were chosen to win by a panel of judges. AT&T was the title sponsor of the competition, and our students were awarded a $2,500 cash prize for their efforts!
