PLTW App Creators is a 9-week unit of study that introduces students to the field of computer science and the concepts of computational thinking through the creation of mobile apps.

Participants will receive a stipend, and lunch will be provided each day.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and will remain open until capacity is met.
