Congressional App Challenge Winner Delia Batdorff

DeliaBatdorfy_1-4-2018Congratulations goes to Delia Batdorff, a local high school junior, who is the 2017 Congressional App Challenge winner for Tennessee’s 5th Congressional District.
The Congressional App Challenge is a national effort to encourage students to learn computer programming through annual district-wide competitions hosted by members of Congress. It encourages student participation in technology and math programs by offering students a chance to create and code.
A student at RePublic High School in Nashville, Batdorff is enrolled in a forward-thinking computer science curriculum, where she practices advanced programming skills. Her winning app is a triangle calculator that solves missing values and angles via trigonometry.
“Delia’s app is awesome. It’ll help students, architects and engineers,” Rep. Jim Cooper said. “Delia and so many other Middle Ten- nessee students are computer experts. I’m amazed by their skills every day!”
Although the competition has closed for this year, it opens back up in 2018, and all middle and high school students in Middle Tennessee are eligible to participate.    To learn more about the Congressional App Challenge go to http://www.congressionalappchallenge.us/
