Tri-Tech Skills Center Wins Best in Region in Innovative App Challenge

Tri-Tech Center Students Inivted to White House Science Fair

Congratulations to the all-girls team from the Tri-Cities Skill Center.

After winning best in state a few weeks ago, the students have moved on to the next round, which is best in region, in the national Verizon Innovative App Challenge.

The contest challenges students to develop a mobile app that addresses a need in their school or community.

The all-girls team developed a safe and sound app concept which provides an alternative, private outlet for teens who suffer from depression or anxiety.

The team will now present their app concept next week via a live webinar.

Eight groups will move on to the final round where students win tablets, learn directly from the MIT Media Lab, plus an additional $15,000 grant for their school.
