What is the Challenge?

The Verizon Innovative App Challenge provides the opportunity for middle school and high school students, working with a faculty advisor, to use their STEM knowledge, their ingenuity, and their creativity to come up with an original mobile app concept that incorporates STEM and addresses a need or problem in their school or community.

The goal of the Challenge is to provide an engaging and empowering learning experience to increase student interest and knowledge in STEM and mobile technology.

  • Teams are encouraged to register their intent to participate as early as possible to receive updates about the Challenge and take advantage of resources available on the website.
