Brindisi gives Seton Catholic student pat on the back for app award

first_imgBINGHAMTON (WBNG) — One Seton Catholic High School student received major kudos from Congressman Anthony Brindisi Tuesday for an app he created. Brindisi explained, “We wanted to introduce this app challenge across the congressional district to really encourage students to take an interest in STEM and developing apps and Luke did a wonderful job that our judges felt really blew them away and we’re so proud to be able to present him with the certificate today and very excited to have him come down to Washington.” Redmore’s app, called Catholic Schools of Broome County, has been up and running for almost a year now. It includes everything from schedules to lunch menus and athletic events for the four county catholic schools. Redmore said, “Just to highlight the community we have here at Seton to just the opportunity we have for students to get involved and make a difference with their community, with their peers and even though we’re a small community all of us can really make a difference so I’m really glad that I got to be a part of that difference.” The challenge was aimed to get students in grades six through 12 to think of an app and design it. Brindisi stopped at Seton Catholic to congratulate Senior Luke Redmore on winning the 22nd Congressional District App Challenge Award back in December.center_img The school district said Redmore’s latest add-on to the app is the creation of a scavenger hunt for elementary school students to use at this weeks S.T.E.A.M. fair on Thursday February 20.

Redmore will join students from not only New York, but across the country who also designed apps in their districts down in Washington, D.C. in the coming months. The district said Redmore is one of 15 students to receive the award in New York.last_img
