Robinson Wins 2023 Congressional App Challenge


  • Monday, January 29, 2024-- Congressman Gary Palmer is pleased to announce that Mountain Brook High School Senior, Kenneth Robinson, has been named the winner of the 2023 Congressional App Challenge for Alabama’s 6th Congressional District. This contest provides a valuable opportunity for middle and high schoolers to develop their skills in computer coding, math, science, and related subjects by creating an original application. 

    Robinson’s app, “Goalie,” is a customizable productivity app which allows users to improve and maximize their productivity. Palmer said he was “extremely impressed” with Kenneth’s creation.

    The app aims to elevate user’s productivity by tracking goals and providing data and feedback to its users. Additionally, Goalie contains a timer and an “Ask AI” tool to assist users with accomplishing their goals.

    Robinson received a recognition certificate from Congressman Palmer and will have the chance to present his app during a coding fair later this spring. 2023 MBHS graduate, Sophia Li, won this award from Congressman Palmer in 2022.
