Apps for Good Festival
Thursday, April 18th
AR Apps for Good Festival – More than 50 Arkansas students will showcase mobile apps they created in their computer science classes at the Arkansas Apps for Good Festival at the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub on April 18. This is the fourth year the Apps for Good festival has been held in Arkansas.
This year’s festival will be held in the at the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub, 201 E Broadway St, North Little Rock, AR 72114 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Students will give elevator pitches, hands-on demonstrations, presentations and will display posters and backboards for their projects. There will be an expo open to the public from noon to 1 p.m. and community members are encouraged to stop in and view the students’ work.
This festival is an opportunity for each of the teams to celebrate their work. “By design, this is not a competition. It’s purely festive. We want them to be proud of their accomplishments for this year,” said Daniel Moix, Director of Coding Arkansas’ Future, which organizes the event each year.
Over the past school year, students were charged to find a problem they want to solve and apply new skills to make a real-life app, exploring the full product development cycle from concept to coding to launch.
Apps for Good is a United Kingdom-based education technology charity working to power a generation to change their world with technology. The organization works alongside educators to develop a free, flexible course framework that infuses digital learning with teamwork, creativity, and entrepreneurship.
The Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts (ASMSA) is a leading provider of computer science education and educator training in Arkansas through the Coding Arkansas’ Future (CAF). The CAF methodology was developed by Daniel Moix, a state, and nationally-recognized innovator in the field of computer science. The philosophy leverages intensive training, mentorship and peer support to increase a teacher’s success in transitioning to teach computer science.
