Decoding a Successful App

Join us for a five-day challenge that exposes students to trending careers and real world computational thinking practices in the field of app design, all through the lens of the global sneaker marketplace GOAT.


During the five-day challenge, students will learn about a company called GOAT and how different members of their team have helped develop the technology solutions that have helped them grow to be worth over a billion dollars. They will use a platform called App Lab to design and program some of their own GOAT app screens and tools.

At the end of the five days, students will build a new app feature using App Lab to help GOAT’s customers discover more fashions and trends.
