2018 STEM WinnersAfter being recognized by the School Board of Akron Public Schools at its meeting of January 22, 2018, STEM High School students Nathan Dort and Robert Frazier were honored by a visit yesterday from Congressman Tim Ryan.

Ryan's Congressional App Challenge sought the best and brightest ideas for a new mobile application across his entire district. Monday, he presented the award for the best idea to Nathan Dort and Robert Frazier on his visit to the school.

Congressman Ryan announced several weeks ago the winning team for the 2017 Congressional App Challenge for their app entitled “The Truth About Opioids." It was developed in response to the topic derived from a problem-based learning scenario involving Summit County Public Health and the Akron Fire Department.

Dort and Frazier's teacher is Sam Appleby.

The goals of the Congressional App Challenge are to ensure continued growth and innovation in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields and to encourage students to excel in those occupations. Congressman Ryan has said that, by 2018, the U.S. is going to need up to three million new, highly-skilled workers in the STEM field.
