Check out this Balsamiq blog post about a group of 8th-graders from Bullis Charter School who are being taught how to design and build apps. Totally inspiring! I was born before most of the world could conceive of “apps,” though by the time I was in high school, we did have a handful of computers with 5.25″ floppy drives and I learned how to print my name in blocks of repeating letters using BASIC. It’s amazing how much has changed! Kudos to the curriculum developers and instructors at Bullis Charter School, Google for supporting their efforts, Balsamiq for providing their awesome Mockups tool, and to the kids that tackled this project head on to find solutions to their everyday problems using technology.
