Yesterday, Roadtrip Nation was happy to play host to 19 incredible educational app developers who were selected as winners of the College Knowledge Challenge! Funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and led by College Summit, The College Knowledge Challenge is a competitive grant initiative to develop innovative apps on Facebook that will help students apply to, attend, and stay in college. Roadtrip Nation not only played host, but was also one of the 19 apps selected to be part of the launch yesterday!
After a day spent being surrounded by such brainy and thoughtful people, we are so inspired, and can say first-hand that all these apps are amazing! Designed to make the college-going process more transparent, collaborative and easy to navigate for low-income and first generation students and their families, these apps will no doubt make a difference in the lives of students who are hungry to explore opporunities for the future.
We want to thank everyone who came to the event yesterday or tuned in via livestream! If you’re curious to see what Roadtrip Nation’s app is, check it out here: http://www.
