To Be, Rather Than to Seem

Students Take On J.P.Morgan's GenerationTech Competition

Juniors Clare G., Haley K., Rachel T. and Ellie R. attended J.P.Morgan’s GenerationTech competition. J.P.Morgan invited students from the Tampa Bay area to tackle a technology-based problem for two non-for-profit organizations they work with--Give Kids the World and Big Brothers, Big Sisters. The students were put into teams at random with a J.P.Morgan employee as a mentor and were taught a new program to build wireframes. They had two hours to prepare an app or website that would address the organization’s current needs. After that, a panel of eight judges listened to mini three-minute pitches from the groups. The top four groups made it to the second round where they presented their app and answered questions from a panel of judges. Clare G.’s group came in 1st place!
