Love to use apps? Now, it's your turn to MAKE one! Join the first annual Congressional Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Academic Competition, the “House App Challenge,” a nationwide event that allows high school students from across the country to compete by creating and exhibiting their software application, or "app," for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice. Apply through April 30.
