UW CSE hosts Youth Apps Challenge

IMG_6876Again this year, UW CSE played host to the finalists in the Technology Alliance’s Youth Apps Challenge.

Youth Apps Challenge is a two-part program that introduces both teachers and students to the power and potential of programming. Youth Apps motivates teams of middle and high school students from across Washington to develop innovative computer applications that address everyday problems.

This year more than 50 teams of students (each with a faculty sponsor) submitted apps to the challenge. Fifteen finalists were selected to showcase their apps today in a live exhibition and pitch contest at the Allen Center.

Congratulations to all of the amazing participants in the 2016 Youth Apps Challenge – and to their amazing teachers and amazing parents!
