Congrats to ‘The Power Pixels’ Girls Can Code Junior Team of OHS Middle Schoolers Narmana, Nicole, Beth, Hannah, and Taly for their UN Sustainable Peace goal app Silver Lining! They were just announced as Semifinalist in the 2017 Technovation Challenege, placing in the top 50 internationally out of over 11,000 girls who competed. Having mentored the team and throughout the entire process of conceiving the app idea to them building the app in Android Studio, I’m so incredibly proud of them and their hard work!
