Scratch & MIT App Inventor

Tech Major

Course Description

No algebra no problem! Campers new to programming learn the basics using event-driven coding. We challenge you to think creatively and reason systematically to code your own stories, games, and animations. Campers then move on to coding android apps with graphics, multi-touch and UI elements including buttons and canvases using MIT App Inventor 2. Campers assemble and test animations, games, programs and applications for the computer and Android devices.
