Build Android phone apps
App Inventor is an alternative to text based computer programming based on MIT’s Scratch programming language. Traditional programming skills are hard-won, yet all of our youths can benefit from the enhanced self-image of their creative abilities through App Inventor training.
Learn to see, learn to build
App Inventor’s block-style interface simplifies the mechanics of programming. By focusing on the multimedia aspect of smart phone app design, our youths learn to think analytically, gaining skills imperative in the new workplace.
Developed by Google and hosted by MIT, App Inventor teaches problem solving, logical thinking, and innovation.
The skills presented and sharpened in phone app development prepare our youths for valuable summer jobs , using Stanford’s design thinking process of empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test.
