Last Monday, Gayatri Rajan won the Congressional App Award for 6th congressional district, for her app Clarity.  I attached a photo of Gayatri receiving her award from our congressman Seth Moulton; here is a link to a video describing her app.


Gayatri learned AP Comp Sci A on her own last year and earned a “5” on the AP exam; she learned Swift for iPhone programming last summer and wrote her Clarity app; she took CSC630 this fall.  Gayatri is an active member of several CS-related clubs at PA and participates in CS hackathons and activities on and off campus; she’s a member of the Coding Circle community engagement program since the fall term of her Junior year.  Gayatri is a lower.

Mike Barker organized & sponsored Gayatri’s transportation to receive the award.  Photo is by Gosia (OWHL), who accompanied Gayatri to the event.
(Last year, Jeffrey Shen won the Congressional App Award for his gerrymandering app.)
