The Rocky Run Middle CyberRams team is one of four teams nationwide to win a STEM-in-Action grant from eCybermission, an educational outreach program of the U.S. Army focused on using science, technology, engineering, and math to solve a real problem in the community. 

Team members Ravi Dudhagra, Diego Gutierrez, Rishabh Krishnan, and Adityasai Koneru developed a computer program—Decibel mApp—to address the problem of noise-induced hearing loss that uses GPS technology to provide users with a map showing decibel levels the user experienced throughout the day. 

Team members worked with a local pediatric otolaryngologist, the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Institutes of Health, and computer programming engineers to develop the app.  The CyberRams won the grant, worth up to $5,000, because their plans were determined to provide the greatest possible impact in their community, and hopes to have the final product ready to go to market in a year.
