Overview

In this course, we will learn how to use MIT App Inventor to build various apps. Students will design the interface for their apps and use code building blocks to develop their own apps. Selected apps will be submitted to google play store.

Curriculum

Module 1

Introduction to MIT App Inventor

Create your first app with MIT App Inventor! Get familiar with its interface, components, functions and coding blocks. Learn basic computer programming concepts, such as logic, loops, conditional statements and variables.

Module 2

App and Game Development

Learn to design different user interfaces and master how to program using blocks. Combine this new knowledge with the foundation of app development, from user interface to backend development. Kids can then create their own advanced and unique apps.
