Do you have an IDEA how to improve the lives of people living in LA?
Short Avenue Elementary K- 6 students are challenged to create an idea for a brand new mobile app that improves the lives of Los Angeles residents. It gives students the opportunity to identify a problem in their community and create a solution using technology. This challenge engages students in STEM principles, encouraging them to delve into the world of innovative technology.
Consider the following questions to help you find the best challenge solution:
1. What issue is your app addressing?
2. Why is the issue important to you and the lives of residents in Los Angeles?
3. How will your app address the issue?
4. How does your app celebrate your talent and history?
Student applications may include sketches, demos, screenshots, and/or videos, though not necessary.
This challenge is open to all California students in grades K-12. There will be three categories of submission: Elementary, Middle School, and High School. Each category will be judged separately. A First, Second and Third place winner will be selected from each category.
First place winners will be awarded a savings bond. Submit your idea(s) before the deadline on October 31.
Students are encouraged students to discuss their ideas with their families. Ms. Casilli, our librarian, will help students with online submissions.
