Fire up your thinking and creative problem-solving skills with this full-day introduction to coding and app building. This workshop is for beginners who want to learn basic coding concepts and terms and build some simple apps.
We will begin the day with an introduction to coding and programming terms and we will explore these concepts using the Scratch program, MIT’s block programming language. With Scratch, you will learn to use, remix and create stories, games, animations and apps (among other things). In the afternoon, you will learn how to use Code.org’s App Lab to create simple applications for personal and, if applicable, professional use. We will also show you how to find and use resources to help you continue with your learning.
No prior experience with app development required.
