Dates for the 2017 challenge will be announced the week of February 21

Whether you’re a parent, teacher, or student, in this section you’ll find useful educational resources that will help participants learn the skills they need to create an app.

This challenge is open to all high school students, regardless of educational experience. We highly encourage students to participate even if they’ve never coded before; the point is to learn something new. Recognizing that students learn in different ways and benefit from different tools, we’ve included several different educational resources. Remember that if one of them doesn’t work for you, there are many alternatives. Don’t get discouraged – just try another one!
