Pace computer students compete at 'The House STEM App Challenge'


Students from Monsignor Edward Pace High School’s Computer Programming organization competed in Florida’s 24th Congressional District, the first annual Congressional Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Academic Competition also known as “The House STEM App Challenge.”  

As part of the competition, students were asked to create and exhibit their software application, or “app,” for mobile device, tablet, or computer on a platform of their choice. 

Two teams from Pace entered the competition and successfully presented their projects before an audience of educators, business leaders, and Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson. The teams were comprised of sophomores Cesar Jimenez, Francisco Pinagel, and Anthony Gonzalez and seniors Nicholas Marcelin, Kenan Yildirim, and Antonio D’Argenzio. 

Antonio D’Argenzio, Kenan Yildirim, and Nicholas Marcelin won third place for their app iGUESSIT, a word guessing game they created using JavaScript that can be played on any platform or device.
