Computer Club

The SST Computer Club was formed by a group of students who shared an interest in computers. The student-led club involves programming software, developing projects, working with teams, and thinking like an engineer.

A team from the Computer Club participated in the 2014 Verizon Innovative App Challenge and created a conceptual design for a mobile app. Called StudentConnect, the app would allow students, teachers, and parents to easily and conveniently communicate in an online community. 

The StudentConnect app has been named a Best in Region winner in the 2014 Verizon Innovative App Challenge. SST was awarded $5,000 to advance their STEM programs and will have access to an online course called "Teaching App Creation with MIT App Inventor" taught virtually by app development experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab's Center for Mobile Learning. The course will teach students how to build their app and bring it to market. 

The Verizon Innovative App Challenge provides the opportunity for middle school and high school students, working with a faculty advisor, to apply their STEM knowledge, ingenuity, and creativity to develop an original mobile app concept that incorporates STEM and addresses a need or problem in their school or community.  The goal of the Challenge is to increase student interest and knowledge in STEM subjects and mobile technology through an engaging and empowering learning experience.
