STEM Kids NYC turns programmers into activists using Code.org

Moiz, a rising sophomore at a New York City high school, shows off his app about COVID-19 made using Code.org’s App Lab. The app is meant to combat misinformation about the disease and includes a true or false quiz, a student checklist, and information on New York Department of Education school policies. It also includes links to information from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control. He also demonstrates how the app can be used in light or dark mode and includes Spanish translations.
Students presented a variety of apps on a topic of their choice. From top left clockwise: an app about mental health in schools, an anti-street harassment app, a budgeting app and an app about sustainability. All apps were made using Code.org’s App Lab.
