We're seeing a fundamental shift in the way people are using their mobile devices. As our high school students become more technological savvy with their smartphones, we want to give them the opportunity to engage the mobile space as creators, regardless of their computer programming knowledge/experience.

App Inventor is a visual programming language that allows students to start writing mobile apps, using a simple block-oriented drag-and-drop interface. It has become a powerful tool for exposing students to the world of computer programming and helping them to create with technology, rather than being mere consumers.

This camp – Mobile App Development with App Inventor introduces children to create and publish Android applications. They will create up to five functional apps & games while learning basic programming concepts along the way. It's a gentle introduction to programming, and they will have fun creating real applications as they learn. As App Inventor integrates with Android smartphones and tablets, children will be able to run and test their apps on a physical mobile device.
