Archimedes and MindAntix are partnering to bring a new
course this Fall on building mobile apps.
During this course students will learn computer science, creative thinking and user design concepts through the process of designing and building their own mobile apps At the end of the program, students will participate in an in-house competition for the best app. We will also explore additional competitions and avenues for the students to participate and showcase their work.
We will be using MIT's App Inventor for building our mobile apps for Android devices version 1.6 and higher.
This class brings parametrized methods, dynamically typed local variables, libraries, and most importantly – objects. Yes, the list sounds very technical, but it is transparent to students – they learn all that by making fun games.
