As part of its broader efforts to foster the tech economy, the New York City Economic Development Corp. is launching NYC Generation Tech, a high school program aimed at training the next generation of Mark Zuckerbergs.

Created in partnership with the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, NYC Generation Tech will choose 30 economically disadvantaged students from city high schools.

Their challenge: To create a mobile app prototype that aims to improve the quality of education or quality of life for other New York students.
