A student team from the Academy at Palumbo won a national STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) award for the crime app they built. The South Philly school won $140,000 in new technology from Samsung, as well as a trip to Washington, D.C. for the students and their teachers, the Inquirer reported.
The students mapped crime around their school in order to find the safest walking routes for other students. They were one of five national winners, beating more than 2,300 other schools in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Competition.
