What happens when you combine twenty 5th graders and a group of software engineers? A lot of fun, creativity, and awesome product development!
This May, Blackbaud held "Camp Blackbaud" in partnership with Charleston Promise Neighborhood. Twenty 5th graders from four Charleston area schools spent two days going through the product development process with Blackbaud developers, designers, QA, and technical writers to create a scavenger hunt app for their schools. At the end of Day 2, each team presented their app and shared help videos that they created to teach users at their school about the app. We're not sure who had more fun--the kids or Blackbaud staff!
