App Building Studio


It is never too early to educate young children in the process of designing, launching and running a new business. In this special series of programs, our goal is to inspire the next generation of STEMpreneurs! The total package includes: STEM + Innovation + Entrepreneurship. In App Building Studio, participants will work like innovators in designing a phone application to solve an engineering or entertainment problem, build and program its prototype and then, like an entrepreneur, they will explore ways to seek out investors for their app. As participants are designing and building apps, they will learn the basic computer programming concepts of variables, user input, conditionals, loops, and data collection. Activities include: App-Potato!, What's That STEM? App, Clicker Game App, Mad Libs App, Clocked In App, Building a Customer App, Bring Your App to Market
