We will be introducing App Inventor as the programming language in this course. App Inventor for Android is an open-source web application originally provided by Google. It is currently maintained by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The application allows newcomers to computer programming to create software applications for the Android operating system. Your kids will be exposed to mobile app design process as well as programming fundamentals.

- Simply bring along your creative mindset and energy!
What do your kids learn?
- Introduction to App Inventor 2 (AI2) and Event-Driven Programming
- Learn simple programming concepts and terminology
- Identify common apps available in the Android Marketplace & learn on the key features of those apps
- Encourage your kids to put on their Design Thinking Hat

- Understand the process of developing a mobile app
How do we at Kidscode impart our knowledge to your child?
- We guide your child through step-by-step exercises for their first project
- We get them to rebuild this first project or do a slight variation of it
- We then leave them to build a simple brand new project from scratch
- We get them to work on this new project without any guidance
- We repeat the process to instill confidence and familiarity
This recursive training method helps to instill the basics of coding, the sense of adventure and the confidence to explore new ways to code even after the course has been completed! Some examples of how skills learned in our course can be used and applied:
- Your very own mobile app
- Continue on with your creation of App with MIT App Inventor
- Challenge your coding skill and compete with programmers
- Take the next step up and try App Creation for both iOS and Android, another app development course available on KidsCode!
