Mobile App Academy

C1Samsung Mobile hosted several Chelsea High School students last Wednesday and Thurs­day – including CHS’s Fernando Mazzoni, shown here comparing programming notes – at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for a two-day mobile application academy. The academies were hosted in six U.S. cities, including Boston, and allow students to learn and program their own applications. More than $30,000 in scholarship money is also of­fered for those who participate in the academy. Last year was the first year of the program, and Samsung awarded a $20,000 to an Arlington High School student who came up with the winning application – an app that helped volunteers find interesting opportunities. The Chelsea students also heard computer programming professionals from Samsung talk about their careers and how they achieved success.
