Bronx teen back at school after meeting Obama

A Bronx high school freshman is back at school after meeting and schmoozing with President Barack Obama.



As News 12 reported, Shemar Dacosta, from the Bronx Academy for Software Engineering, was chosen to attend the White House Science Fair for a school app that he created.



His app called Voices gives students an anonymous voice to talk about issues going on in school, including bullying.



Dacosta says that his app is expected to be copyrighted sometime next month.



School officials say they're planning to launch the app at the school this September.
