The NYC Department of Education is challenging software developers to submit apps and games that enhance teaching, learning, and engagement for our middle schools.

Software developers are invited to submit a new or existing gap app that helps fill the gap in middle school students’ skills, interests and motivation. Apps can address the gap by improving middle school math outcomes or by enhancing educator collaboration, classroom communication and management, or engagement.

Winners of the challenge will receive $50,000 in cash prizes, as well as $54,000 in Amazon AWS Credits. After the challenge, eligible submissions may be considered for a pilot program in iZone schools supported by Amazon Web Services consulting services. The iZone schools are a collection of 250 innovative New York City public schools committed to personalizing learning for every student.
