App Inventor 1
Ages 10 – 12
Create the next B I G Thing
Google Maps, WhatsApp, Instagram have become our everyday essential apps and your child may be the creator of the next B I G thing that you will use in your life. We nurture future leaders in technology by allowing students to explore the path of mobile app development. The MIT App Inventor 2 Platform help students to create fully functional mobile apps that can be launched into the app store!
With an intuitive, visual drag-and-drop programming, the App Inventor allows students to apply computational thinking and creativity to design their own apps and put them to test immediately on their phones. They can build simple fun apps such as Countdown Timer, Racing Game, Robot Shooter Game and more!
App Inventor 1’s goal is to introduce mobile app programming, instill confidence and an adventurous spirit for students to continue exploring to become little app creators. This course is suitable for students aged 10-12 in the current year. Want to find out more? Check out our FAQs.
