NEW App Inventors Ages 10-14
MAKE AN APP & MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
No previous coding experience necessary!
Young inquisitive campers will learn a variety of digital media skills and coding while creating apps with MIT App Inventor.
App Inventor uses a visual block based coding language, similar to Scratch, but a lot more sophisticated and powerful!
Each day campers will complete one or two app projects. They can create their own Paint program, tranform their phone into a snow globe, make games like Whack-a-mole or Space invaders, plus much more. They will tackle new coding concepts, such as: variables, loops and conditional statements. By week’s end they will have a number of projects they can share with friends and family!
MIT App Inventor is now compatible with both Android and Ios!
