We’re always wondering what would happen if we gave more opportunities for kids to come up with creative solutions to relevant problems instead of just asking them to do problems 1-20 odd in the back of the chapter. Well that’s just what 43 students from underserved New York City high schools got a chance to do for the second annual NYC Generation Tech Entrepreneurship Program where the only requirement was to create an app that “improved education of city life for students in New York City.”
Suffice to say, they came up with some cool stuff. And the best part? They didn’t even know how to program at the beginning of the 11-week cycle. Maybe parents should take a stab at it…anyone want to take a stab at a “Clean Your Room” app?
What would you create with a computer if you had the chance?
