The cybersecurity program is working to solve problems with apps, competing across the nation with other mobile apps students.

This competition, powered by MIT App Inventor, gives students the chance to solve problems in the education or business world using their own ideas and programming. The app allows students to code for free using “blocks-based coding programs [that] inspire intellectual and creative empowerment. MIT App Inventor goes beyond this to provide real empowerment for kids to make a difference — a way to achieve social impact of immeasurable value to their communities,” said MIT.

“First, we would think of an idea or problem that [students] might face. The app that we made solved the problem of students and time management. So our app would help them manage time, and we would have to present that on a board [in the competition],” Dibyesh Sahoo, freshman, said.

“The second part is the coding. In the coding, what we do is first make sure the user interface looks good and the design is user-friendly. Then, once we’re done coding, we would go ahead and test it. Once we’re done testing, we can see what improvements we have to make so that we can keep improving,” Ameya Pradnis, freshman, said.

Although the competition is important to the students, they soon realized the gravity and usefulness of their apps as well. Ameya said that parents could use the app to navigate the school and students could better time manage with the help of the app they designed.

These apps ranged from math solving, World War Two history and general wellness.

The apps will be submitted on May 12.  Good luck!
