CGI I.T. Girl Challenge - Boston winners: Lawrence High School

Lawrence High School team members Alysia Brito and Jeanmely Rojas Nunez developed the GradeUp mobile app for the CGI I.T. Girl Challenge. The purpose of the GradeUp mobile app is to help and tutor students with their classes, whether from missing class or for homework support within the realm of Covid or not.

We want to thank our CGI mentors, judges, Junior Achievement of Northern New England and all participants from Boston Latin Academy, Boston Latin School, Burlington High School and Team Squashbusters. We’re proud of all the teams and can’t wait to see what you do in the future.

CGI I.T. Girl Challenge is a mobile app challenge for high school girls. Small teams partner with CGI mentors to develop a smartphone app utilizing a mobile app-building platform. Each team will present its mobile app to a panel of judges. The most innovative, applicable, and creative mobile app design team will receive college scholarship funds.  

The challenge originated at one of CGI’s Innovation Centers in Pittsburgh. Thanks to CGI’s Dream Connectors program, it has become an annual event in Pittsburgh and expanded across the U.S.
