ADL is happy to announce the winners of its first STEM* App Challenge.
Winners of the student award were Yu Qiao, Lingchen Xiong, and Martin Keegan, a team from Ohio State University, for their “Real Ball” app. This app helps students understand the relationship between velocity and acceleration via a game they can play on their mobile phones.
Winner of the commercial award was MicroEmpowering.org for its “Curiosity School – STEM Series” app, a set of eight experiments about STEM topics that students could reproduce at home. MicroEmpowering co-founders George Murphy and Carolina Cabral Murphy accepted the award.
The winners received their certificates on Wednesday, 1 August, at iFest 2012 in Orlando, FL. Mr. Frank DiGiovanni, Director, Training Readiness and Strategy, Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (Readiness), presented the awards. Both winners demonstrated their apps during a mobile learning break-out session at iFest.
ADL thanks all those who developed and submitted apps to the Challenge.
