Tomorrow's leaders must understand how to program computers and other smart devices.
Through the Scout Innovation Design Challenge, you will learn what is required to create an innovative solution and how to invent, innovate and implement an idea that improves your community.
Youth are challenged to think of an idea for an app that helps solve an United Nations Sustainable Development Goal or problem. Youth will then use the Code.org App Lab to learn to design apps. More details about what must be completed and by when is included below as part of the application file. Finalist will pitch their app design to a panel of industry leaders and winners can win between $500-$3000 for their unit.
