On a recent Saturday morning, local participants were invited to the Student Innovation Center at the Rochester Institute of Technology, where Representative Louise Slaughter introduced this year’s Annual Congressional App Challenge. In its second year, the App Challenge invites high school students across the nation to submit their designs for original mobile and computer applications.  

As representatives from the industry, Second Avenue Learning presented on the importance of diversity in product teams and end-user requirements gathering and testing. Faculty from the University of Rochester discussed game design, the Strong National Museum provided information on game history, and a member of local game studio, Workinman, explained important factors in game development. All of these issues are of critical importance for app development.
