Holy Trinity Students Create Their Own Apps

Holy Trinity Students Create Their Own Apps
Posted on 12/18/2017

The STEM students of Holy Trinity Diocesan High School in Hicksville have been coding apps for the phone using MIT App Inventor software.  They submitted the apps they created to the Congressional App Challenge.  Each student not only created and programmed his/her own app but also had to submit a YouTube video explaining the functionality of the app and its use.  William Antropov coded an app so that the user could test the compatibility of computer parts, i.e., processors and RAM.  Emily Sullivan, Emelyn Tang, and Jenny Shen coded an app to help international students adjust to being in the United States.  It included transportation information, emergency numbers, places to eat, and places to shop.  Two students, Cedric Dhaiti and Edward Noble, programmed apps that would help students learn and practice vocabulary, one app for Japanese and one for Spanish.  Sydney Gillespie created an app all about fireworks, which included their chemical makeup, safety issues, and places to view displays.  John Florio’s app lets the user store all their computer passwords in one place.  Donnie-Lee Frazier and Niel Chonoolal created a fitness app to improve performance in several sports.  Jeannine Simeti coded a package locator app, while Stephen Williamsen coded an apt to locate friends through GPS. 

Holy Trinity was informed during Computer Science Week that Edward Nobel won the Congressional App Challenge for the N.Y.S. 4th Congressional District.
