Remember the conversation starter about app design? Well, turns out Verizon agrees that asking students to design an app is a great way for them to be creative, express themselves and utilize their STEAM skills.
I loved hearing that a group of middle school girls in California had not only won, but had used the challenge to design a functional app which would support one of the special needs students in their class. Their app was conceived to aid a visually-impaired classmate in day-to-day classroom tasks.
Way to go girls!
