New Summer School Course Lets Kids Design and Build a Mobile App Scavenger Hunt

A  new course is being offered to 7th and 8th graders this summer.  Students will design and build an app that will allow anyone in the community to play a city-wide scavenger hunt on their mobile phones.

This course will teach life skills in a fun way.  The rigors of the course will challenge students to explore their personal character and learn to persevere through failures.  By the end, students will have new skills for making difficult life decisions and a deeper compassion for themselves and others.

There will an information meeting to help answer any questions you might have about this course on April 24th at 7:00pm in the Middle School cafeteria.

In the video below, one of the college mentors will tell you more about the course.
