Ironwood Tech Team Wins 1st Place

American Leadership Academy Ironwood High School students participated in an after school Tech Team in conjunction with the Pinal County ESA sponsored MAD APP Competition. Our students did an amazing job and placed 1st out of all the entries. Way to go Warriors!

This group of students learned how to create informational apps for mobile devices on a platform called MAD-learn. They spent the first part of the school year meeting once a week to learn the platform and make their own apps. In April, we began the competition part of the experience. Students worked together to create a mobile app based on the needs of Florence City Parks and Recreation Department. This group was student led and motivated. They met twice a week for the last month and presented their app to a group of industry professionals on May 4th. Students were graded on a rubric based on Content, Appeal, Engagement, User Friendly Functionality, Presentation Delivery, and Presentation Preparation.
