For the 2017-2018 school year Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) will be adding eight more NAF academies to the two returning academies already involved with the Lenovo Scholar Network (LSN). NAF is a national network of education, business, and community leaders who work together to ensure that high school students are college, career and future ready.

Now in it’s fourth year, LSN will be collaborating with NAF to bring a robust mobile app development curriculum and delivery program to NAF academies in the United States. LSN and NAF both offer an innovative curriculum and technology to encourage interest among high school students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).

NAF and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) collaborated to present professional development and resources for teachers using MIT APP Inventor. M-DCPS has the most participants in the NAF Network joining the partnership between NAF and Lenovo.  Currently, M-DCPS has 57 NAF Academy programs, including the one’s being added this school year. We can all expect to see exciting new changes to our schools this year.
