This course introduces students to MIT App Inventor. Students understand the purpose and the user interface of App Inventor, and use it to build several applications/games. As students build these projects, they explore core programming concepts and the different aspects of App Inventor, including adding components and design their layouts, the blocks editor, and writing scripts to add behavior to the components. No prior experience with coding is required to participate in this course. Device prerequisite: (i) Laptop/Computer (Windows or Mac) and Phone/Tablet (Android/Apple) or emulator in case there's no access to Phone/Tablet OR (ii) Android capable Chromebook). More details on the supported devices can be found here: https://appinventor.mit.edu/explore/ai2/setup. Students are encouraged to follow the link on this page and install the App Inventor Companion App on their device ahead of the first class.

"We have had students interested in coding, but did not have staff with content knowledge to teach it. Whizara did a wonderful job of providing the curriculum and the expertise to give our students great success with their first experience in coding. The students grew tremendously throughout the class, as the instructor was kind, knowledgeable and related well with the students. The scope and sequence of the curriculum was excellent and I couldn’t believe how much progress the students made in just 10 weeks. Our school looks forward to working with Whizara again in the future! "

"Whizara program further developed our students' creativity. Using the program not only taught them coding but also critical thinking and reasoning skills that go beyond coding and support students in all subjects. "

"Our school has adopted the coding class provided by Learn2Code and we have found it to be a very valuable enhancement to our STEM programs. Our students have found it engaging and beneficial! We are very pleased with the service we have been provided and the content - the instructor is also wonderful!"
