NYSCI Hosted App Design Workshops for Congressional App Design Challenge

We were excited to recently host App Design 101 workshops at NYSCI in partnership with U.S. Congress Members Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Grace Meng. Students were introduced to the design process of creating an app and to the digital tools needed to build it. Students left the workshop energized and excited to submit their app ideas to the Congressional App Design Challenge. App ideas included increasing awareness of mental health, sharing a community’s history, digital tennis lessons, crocheting lessons, and more.
