Lee County High School Academy of Engineering student's Brandon Ramirez, Sebastian Sandi-Siles, and Mico Edralin named one of the winning teams in 2018 Lenovo Scholar Network Mobile App Development Competition.
Please vote for their app and advance them to the next level of competition!
Thousands of students in Lenovo Scholar Network academies were given Lenovo laptops, tablets, or Moto phones and were tasked with designing, coding, developing, and testing a mobile app.
The competition originated to encourage greater interest among underserved high school students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects. The results every year are a testament to the students’ talent, innovation, and originality in applying their classroom-learning to solve a real-world issue.
The winning teams will present their apps to audiences at NAF Next, NAF’s annual professional development conference, in Washington DC this July. “Fan Favorite” voting also opens today and allows the students’ local communities to voice their opinions on the apps and share their top pick. This team will also receive Lenovo products.
As part of the program, NAF, Lenovo, and MIT work together to provide technical assistance and to develop support materials for academies using MIT App Inventor.

"LCHS SkillsUSA chapter members along with several other LCHS CTE students and instructors joined nearly 300 other community members this weekend volunteering to help with the City of Sanford Block Party. The students gave up the majority of their Saturday to put their "Skills" to work helping the community while engaging in painting, landscaping, and light carpentry work. This is the third year our chapter has actively participated and once again the students in the chapter have done a phenomenal job providing a much-needed facelift to the houses assigned to them. I must say to watch these student work so hard to give back to their community is inspiring."
