Students at Jefferson Middle School in New Jersey recently received training from a member of the MIT App Inventor Training Corps on how to program applications using a visual-based programming tool. The students received the training after their idea for an app, called Invase Erase, which helps identify invasive plants and animals in Lake Hopatcong, was named a finalist in the Verizon Innovative App Challenge. "By starting the kids off early with visuals they learn to enjoy the field and not get frustrated, eventually transitioning to coding," MIT App Inventor member Kelly Powers said.
