App Camp for Girls July 16-21


App Camp For Girls seeks to address the gender imbalance in technology professions by inspiring middle-school age girls with a broad introduction to the process of app development, from brainstorming and designing ideas to building and pitching their apps. We believe that the experience of creating an app that runs on a device in one week can spark the enthusiasm that will propel girls to pursue further tech education.

In addition, App Camp For Girls is a place for women in the tech community to come together, network, and provide mutual support in their endeavors to advance in the field of software development. We encourage and support our volunteers to continue their own education in programming and design.

The inaugural season of App Camp for Girls took place in Summer 2013 in Portland, Oregon. In 2018, we will hold sessions in Portland, Seattle, Chicago and Minneapolis. We’ve worked with 225 aspiring developers and over 70 mentor volunteers in over the last five summers! Check out Four Summers In One Minute to see them all.

HS Student Hackathon Opportunity at ISTE 6/24-6/27

Full details at:

ISTE Hackathon 2018 [SE106]

The new ISTE Student Hackathon will happen live during ISTE 2018! A hackathon is an innovation marathon where students can identify, research and solve real-world problems. The term “hacking” has evolved over the years to describe the act of quickly and intelligently creating a real application/solution that others can use. Programmers, designers, builders and free thinkers will come together to learn, build and share their creations over the course of a few days. This event is for high school students.

Urban Planning internship for graduating seniors only

See details I received below. If you contact them, feel free to reference that you received the information from Mr. Solin and / or cc me on your email (jbsolin).

I am able to hire one college or graduate intern to work on the Michael Reese redevelopment project with me. They could work in the summer or continue on for the fall. I am prioritizing students from the larger Bronzeville community and/or students of color. I would like to help students who are studying urban planning, real estate, finance and project management and get them more experience in community development.
They would focus on:
– Coordinating meetings
– Project management documents
– Research on different building uses, Bronzeville history, sustainability
– Working with demographic data and maps to make charts and infographics
– Preparing materials for stakeholder meetings
– High-level excel sheet coordination for finances and budgets
This would be an unpaid internship but there would be lunch provided. Let me know if you can think of any candidates and I would love to see a resume and a cover letter from them. They can send it to

We launched!

The annual Congressional App Challenge (CAC) launches today. The CAC is a congressional initiative to encourage student engagement in STEM and, more specifically, Computer Science. Middle and high school students from across America are invited to participate.

Already, over 120 Members of Congress have opted to hold a Challenge in their district this yet.

You can help spread the word to your network. Here are some quick links:

It’s not just mobile apps!

Quick tips:

  • It’s not just mobile apps! Web apps, desktop apps, Raspberry Pi, etc. are accepted!
  • Students can submit a computer program they created for a term project to the contest.
  • High school seniors should submit their term project apps before they graduate.
  • We strongly encourage students to register before Labor Day for a chance at surprise early-bird prizes.
Note: We accept original apps coded on any platform (web apps, desktop/PC applications, mobile apps, Raspberry Pi, robots, etc), in any programming language.

About the Congressional App Challenge

The CAC is an official initiative of the U.S. House of Representatives, managed by the Internet Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The first three years of the program yielded 426 challenges across 42 states. Over 2,400 apps were created by over 8,800 students.
