The competition and app development program encourages greater interest among underserved high school students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) while providing them with the high-tech skills to succeed in the 21st century. In this competition, teams of students from 50 Lenovo Scholar Network academies across the U.S. spent months developing mobile apps that will be of service in their classrooms and communities.
