This holiday camp empowers students through teaching them problem-solving using technology to build mobile apps.
From introducing fundamental computer science concepts, applying Design Thinking process to utilizing App Inventor as a language, we guide students to apply problem-solving skills to their daily lives. Adapting a curriculum used in Silicon Valley, we cover user-centric design and mobile app development. Students receive personal guidance from our professional trained instructors in thinking through algorithms, decomposing problems and formulating multiple solutions.
Introduction to Computer Programming
- Introduction to computer programming, algorithms and basic logic controls.
- Creating their first app and familiarizing with App Inventor.
- Hands-on: Setting up their computer environment, creating their first app and packaging it.
Basic App Development
- Introduction to key programming structurs, including variables, conditionals and procedures.
- Familiarizing with interactive App Inventor components such as sensors and medias.
Design Thinking and Hands on App Creation
- Defining and ideating their individual project through brainstorming workshops.
- Creating prototype and testing it against users for usability and iteration.
- Individual meetings with instructor to plan out their app and project timeline.
- Hands-on: Guided brainstorming in small groups, sketching or modeling prototype.
