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. Unlike the BranchOut! mentoring program, BranchOut! Innovator will be year-long and remote.
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.
Design engaging curriculum for the app that aligns with SOL test standards. Curriculum designers are assigned the task of writing questions, lessons, and other content that will enable students to learn material effectively.
Help increase the app's impact and reach a larger audience. 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.
