Congressional App Challenge: The Impact

*2020 showed us that the loss of access to resources was detrimental to students in getting access to computer science gateways

Between 2020 and 2029 IT jobs will increase 11%, higher than any other career. 

In 2022 at least 1 million computer programming related jobs will go unfilled. 

Congressional App Challenge is helping create the next generation of STEM workforce by introducing kids to Computer Science concepts early
