    Interesting program Carole.  I supervise a summer research program where undergraduate statistics majors create apps for teaching statistical concepts and then field test them in live classes in the Fall semester.  I find that the students really gain a deeper appreciation for the concepts they are illustrating with their apps - so I'm a definite proponent of the underlying theme of your work.

    Nice presentation of the project.  If someone was to adapt or adopt this approach, what are the key elements they would need to focus on?

    I got to be a part of this wonderful program. They took my basic knowledge of sustainability and programming to a whole new level. I can't thank all of our experts enough for the time and support they put into our cohort. AMP was such a great experience and it allowed me to do things I never thought I would be able to do. Now my two other friends and I have our own energy app, that's amazing!

    This sounds like a great experience to be involved in.

    I am wondering if students leave the program with any type of badge or certification they can use when applying for jobs or college?

    What type of instruction do students receive around public speaking when presenting their projects at the end of the program?

    With the focus of the project being 9th - 11th grade, I am wondering what kind of outreach is done in younger grades to prepare students for this opportunity?

    Nice concept of using apps for learning - and - building your own apps - learning to design good ones as well. Overall cool. How do you know what principles are being learnt in the process - especially considering the diversity of apps that get made. One i can see is the design process of a good app - test - iterate - and the user interface design. But i was not able to see other general aspects they learn from this process - since it is very diverse set of apps. So they may not be able to get coached on specifics. What and how are the design goals of the app set and by whom? I guess the idea of the app comes from the student learner?
