Summer at Woodstock – App and Game Development

Learn MIT App Inventor to create mobile applications and games 

 In this course, students will be exposed to the building blocks of an Android application using MIT App Inventor. This integrated web application is an intuitive, visual programming environment that allows everyone – even kids – to build fully functional apps for smartphones and tablets. 

  

Who should take this course?

Anyone interested in learning programming in a gamified manner. 

    

Highlights & Learning

This block-based approach for creating apps facilitates the creation of complex, high-impact apps in significantly less time than traditional programming environments. In this course, you will be inspired to make creative and meaningful mobile apps. We teach fundamental programming logic along with the tools required to develop apps, empowering you to create, rather than just use software technology. 

  

Key Learning

  • Learn fundamentals of coding and learn to decompose, abstract and modularize. 
  • Explore mobile interfaces for resource planning and calculator apps 
  • Learn about the server side of the app and program smartphone sensors like accelerometer, pedometer etc. 
  • Design an application to draw using different colour and pen variations. 
  • Push Button, Bounce, Squash, Mole Mash, Fruit Slice, Rock-Paper-Scissor, Golf and more. 
  • Make a sound recorder, voice translator, text-to-voice app and virtual musical instruments. 
  • Design & build mobile-based AI apps like image classification, image calculator, number plate text recognition, etc.
