App Development I

App Development I will focus on teaching students about apps using MIT’s App Inventor! App Dev I is perfect for students ages 10+ and does not require previous coding knowledge. However, since the interface is similar to Scratch’s interface, knowledge with Scratch is helpful!

We understand kids, so we understand that each one is different and has a different learning style and pace.  Our experienced instructors are experts at working with diverse ability levels and backgrounds.   

CodeSimba is passionate about making our courses accessible to every child, and our monthly billing system reflects that.  We understand that commitments change and that life can be unpredictable. 

At the end of each course, students create their own projects and share it with their CodeSimba instructor and classmates. No previous programming skills are required. We will teach students how to use a computer and browser and managing files. Students do not need to purchase any software or textbook.
