VIDEO: 6th Grade App Developer Speaks at TEDx

When most kids in 6th grade are climbing trees and trying out for the baseball team... Thomas Suarez is developing iOS apps and recently a guest speaker at TED
Suarez speaks about a few of the apps he has created for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch as well as how he wishes to bring the education of App Development into the classroom. 
“A lot of kids these days like to play games, but now they want to make them,” he says. “And it’s difficult because not many kids know where to go find out how to make a program…And not many parents have written apps.” Suarez, inspired by Steve Jobs, started an App Club at school where any student can come to learn to design an app. In the future, Suarez wants to create more apps, more games and get into Android programming and development. He plans on continuing his app club and find other ways for students to share knowledge with others.
