The students in our Capstone Project class, all Seniors, form teams every year in order to design and develop a sophisticated app for an independent customer. This year there were 14 apps developed: web apps, iphone apps, android apps, and desktop apps. The projects vary, from a mobile-accessible database for maintaining geological samples, to mobile apps for monitoring queue lengths at voting stations, to a tablet app for viewing historical maps. You can watch video demonstrations below and get links to the projects' websites. You can also see photos of the students doing live demos.
