The Emmett J. Conrad Academy of Engineering is among six schools named as finalists in the Lenovo Scholar Network National Mobile App Development Competition, sponsored by the National Academy Foundation (NAF) and technology company Lenovo.
The contest aims to encourage greater interest among underserved high school students in STEM disciplines while providing them with high-tech skills needed to succeed in today’s workplace.
Conrad’s app is called “Klinik,” and provides users with a list of health, food and educational resources close to their current location.
Voting for the Fan Favorite app is open now through July 10. Vote for Conrad’s project here.
