EDU App Challenge

Nov. 6-8, 2015: The EDU App Challenge - the first ever Canadian event bringing together developers and educators to create learning tools for K-12 students - is happening in Calgary November 6 – 8th , with over $10,000 in cash & prizes provided by founding sponsors The Royal Conservatory, Robots and Pencils, and TELUS.

The EDU App Challenge aims to bridge the very different perspectives of educators and developers, leading to the design of tools that expand a generalist teacher’s toolkit and empower students to take charge of their learning.  It is the first event of its kind in Canada (a similar event in the U.S. attracts 1,000 developers annually).

Dexterity Ventures Inc. and Place2Give are proud community supporters of the EDU App Challenge.


Registration is $35, but is free for Students and Educators. Register by Friday, October 30 at http://www.eduappchallenge.org/register. Use our discount code GIVE to receive $10 off of your ticket price. For more information, visit http://www.eduappchallenge.org.
