Englewood High School SmartLab Team Rocks the AT&T Mobile App Hackathon

Written by SmartLab Learning

Congratulations to the Englewood High School SmartLab Hackathon team!

As Englewood’s first year competing in the AT&T Aspire Mobile App Hackathon, they came away with third place overall, and first place in the Sphero app development.

Englewood’s SmartLab Facilitator, Bill Gilmore, wrote this about the team’s experience:

“We are all absolutely wiped out after 30 hours of intensive, trial-by-fire coding, fun networking, and team-building. We went into this absolutely cold with no real understanding of what to expect, and we were absolutely intimidated after the first two hours of the event. After getting over our initial shock and awe, everyone settled in and our students did themselves and the district proud!”

Here’s the promotional video the team created for their Sphero app:

Case Study

Going beyond STEM to teach essential skills

When the team at Jewell Houston Academy, a magnet school in Texas, looked for a STEM program, they wanted one that would not only engage students in STEM careers but could also teach conflict-resolution, problem-solving, collaboration, and communication skills.
