Join 16 NYC public high school students as they pitch their ideas for new apps for the mobile platform.

Over the course of 12 intense summer days, as part of Eyebeam's 11th annual Digital Day Camp program, these teens have worked with a team of experienced interaction designers to learn about all aspects of mobile technology – from thinking critically about mobile phones (what they can and cannot do, what we think they are for, how people use them, and how we think people will be using them in the near future), to taking an idea from brainstorming into development, to thinking about a user story and experience, to communicating an app identity through visual design and graphic elements. These students have been ideating, mood boarding, story boarding, and being all around brilliant. On our final day together, we will polish our ideas and translate them into a proper pitch - just for YOU: a mix of designers, developers, business leaders, mobile researchers, and more. Our dream: One of you will help us turn our app ideas into reality! At the very least, we hope you will share your insights and feedback with us.
