We received the good news earlier this week that Arjun S., inventor of the Locatera bus manager app, is one of the winners of Google India's Code To Learn contest
Arjun is a 10th grader whose apps have made a large impact. His most popular app is Locatera - an app that allows parents and school administrators to track the school bus system! The app has three counterparts - one for parents
, one for administrators
, and one for students
. To learn more about how Locatera works, you can watch Arjun's YouTube videos here
This isn't the first time Arjun's apps have won awards. The predecessor to Locatera, EZ School Bus Locator, won several distinctions such as: First prize (K-8 Category) in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) App Inventor App Contest held in December 2012, Finalist in the Global Discovery Academy Design App Contest held in October 2013 , and Finalist in the mBillionth Award South Asia conducted by the Digital Empowerment Foundation (DEF) in July 2013. Additionally, Locatera won our App Of the Month contest
The App Inventor team is extremely proud of Arjun and all the other contest winners. We love to hear that young people are using App Inventor to improve their communities and make an impact on the world.
