As Florida  high school winners of the Congressional App Challenge , we Ronald Reagan/Doral students have been invited to #HouseOfCode in Washington DC!  This is a huge step for us towards our goals and the start of our future careers in Computer Science. Any donation helps a ton!

At the House of Code event we will have our work honored/displayed, and  meet Congressional Representatives &  important members of the tech community. The House of Code will take place April 12TH-14TH, 2018. However, we hope to make flight and hotel arrangements as early as possible before prices change, hence the need for a rapid funding cycle. Below you can view our app that won.  -----------------------------------------------------------------------
MIAMI – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) announced that the winner of the 2017 Congressional App Challenge for Florida’s 25th District is VRExperience, an app created by students Diego Landaeta and Diego Mansilla. The students attend Ronald W. Reagan Doral Senior High School in Doral, Florida. They described their app as “a simple walking simulator throughout a pleasant forest. With our app we are trying to open the eye of discovery in science, history and medicine through simulations of real life scenarios.” The team used the Unity Engine and coded the app with C#. The app was highly praised by the judges, an independent panel of local technology and STEM leaders, who rated the submissions anonymously based on a point system.
