For students that are interested in learning more about mobile app development, the school district is sponsoring a 24 week online program taught by industry professionals. Students will meet online weekly where they will receive training on designing, developing, and building a mobile app as a final product. The program will run like a cohort where members in your own school will form a development team. Besides individually learning, each team will be responsible to collaboratively develop a final app and pitch for a city wide competition. As an incentive, the Richmond school District has agreed once again to subsidize the cost of the program by 50% for 100 students. Final registration cost for the entire 24 week program is $225. If your are looking for more information please visit gameofapps.org or register for their parent / student online info session on Sept 24 under updates.
