There's an app for that...or is there?
Do you have an idea for a mobile app? Are you willing to see your idea through and actually launch a new app? The University of Minnesota student Mobile App Challenge is back for a second year to give you the opportunity to do just that. Students imagine and pitch ideas for a mobile app, and then over the course of two semesters, work in teams to develop the app. Prizes include iPads for the winning team, and iPods for runners up.
To help you get started, attend an informational kick-off event, where you will learn what is expected from your app and how to effectively pitch your idea.
