Apps for Good
At Apps for Good, they aim to grow the next global generation of problem-solvers and tech entrepreneurs; young people that learn how to build, market, and launch digital tools to solve problems that they care about, changing their world and challenging the status quo.
Partnering with schools and colleges, they train educators to deliver the programme to students aged 10-18 from a diverse range of socio-economic, ethnic, and gender backgrounds, transforming the way technology is taught in schools and helping young people learn to turn bright ideas into real technology products.
Our support will sponsor the delivery of the course in three schools across the UK, particularly those schools with a higher proportion of students from underprivileged and ethnic minority backgrounds.
The programme will cover for each school a 12-month period, from course revision and continuous professional development (with updated training materials) for teachers during the summer, through to access and support for Expert sessions, help in how to run in-school pitch events, and finally entry into the Awards and a chance to win investment in their app idea.
