Elementary School Launches After School App Building Program

This month a group of first – sixth graders in Ohio are setting out to design their own smartphone app. Kilgour School, a public elementary school in Cincinnati, is launching an after school program dedicated to app building in conjunction with Northern Kentucky University and the Ohio-based nonprofit Partnership for Innovation in Education.

The students will use “App Inventor,” a tool designed by MIT and Google to help educators learn and teach app inventing. Once they have built it, they will work together to market it and all of the proceeds will go to the school.
