ABOUT

Lenovo’s partnership with NAF brings a robust mobile app development curriculum and delivery program to NAF academies in the United Sates. The Lenovo Scholar Network, now in its second year, is designed to provide high school students with an intensive application development program to enable the next generation of developers and entrepreneurs. The Lenovo Scholar Network encourages greater interest among underserved high school students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects while providing them with high tech skills to succeed in the 21st century. Lenovo Scholar Network academies were given Lenovo PCs and tablets and students were tasked with designing, coding, developing, and testing a mobile app and creating a plan to take the app to market. Students used the MIT Center for Mobile Learning’s App Inventor, a web-based tool for creating Android apps, to build and test their apps on Lenovo devices.
