The Mountain View High School Annual Computer Science App Contest is May 26, 2017. Beginning each January, service-learning students in the Computer Science department design and build mobile apps. Working individually or in small teams, students research a community needs, either on their school campus in the wider community, and create a mobile app that will meet those needs.
Last year’s student winners were:
Daniel Ciao – Best Overall for his app to show speed limit when using Google maps.
Stephen Hurwit -Best Community Service – Stephen’s app scans students’ school id card. Event organizations can use this data to see if a student has paid or not.
Marc Bacvanski – Best Interface – His app allows teachers to create flash cards using just a Google spreadsheet. Any updates are then pushed automatically for the students to use.
Nathan Lutz – Most Useful App – Nathan created an app for his US History class. It quizzes students on questions designed by the teachers, and gives a score. Students can practice this over and over again.
