The Challenge

GenTech students will work in teams of five with the help of college-aged and adult mentors to build an original Android mobile app using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PhoneGap.  This year’s My City, My Schools Challenge is to create app that, “improves education or city life for students in New York City.”  Students will demo their completed app and pitch their business idea at Demo Night in September 17, 2015 for a first place prize of $5,000.
