Christine has been mentoring a team of high school girls on developing an idea for mobile phone app and creating a business plan around it. Last week this team won the national contest which is called Technovation Challenge. Congratulations to Diana Gong, Evaline Tsai, Rachel Shaffer, Shalmali Joshi and Sravya Patnala! And their teaching assistant, Diane Kreil!
They created an app called “I.O.U.” which plans to help people keep track of loaned and borrowed items, which is a common problem on college campuses. More info is here.
