As of 2017, 77% of Americans own a smartphone or tablet. It is estimated that in 2020, people will spend $189 billion on apps. Design Your Own App is an excellent extension for students to use critical thinking and problem solving skills to develop a new innovative app. Their new app can be used to entertain, connect people, educate, or make everyday living easier. Students will create a thorough description of how to app works and a visual design of the app. Finally, students will have the opportunity to pitch their idea to an app developing company, in hope to strike it rich.
