BranchOut! Innovator is a project-based program designed for students to use their creativity and technical skills to create meaningful change in their communities. Working in teams, students in programming, curriculum design, and marketing will design a mobile application for SOL test preparation.
Bring an application to life through code with your programming knowledge. Developers will work collaboratively on the technical aspect of the app to create a final product that can enhance student learning experiences. The app will have attention grabbing points to effectively engage and encourage students to continue interacting with the app activities.
Design engaging curriculum for the app that aligns with SOL test standards. Curriculum designers will formulate course outlines via writing questions, lessons, and other content that will enable students to successfully learn material and better prepare for the SOL.
Help increase the app's positive impact through reaching a larger audience. They will promote the app to reach as many eyes as possible. Those on the marketing team will devise strategies to "branch out" with the app and expand its user base through social media, contacting officials, and other means.
