About This Course

Create the next B I G thing

Google Maps, WhatsApp, Instagram have become our everyday essential apps and your child may be the creator of the next B I G thing that you will use in your life. We nurture future leaders in technology by allowing students to explore mobile app development.

Develop vital 21st century skills

With an intuitive, visual drag-and-drop programming, our App Inventor curriculum guides students to apply computational thinking and creativity to design their own apps and put them to test immediately on their phones. These are skills important not only in coding, but also in many other fields.

Engaging and interactive curriculum

There will be plenty of hands-on activities and self-check quizzes to reinforce students' knowledge and keep them motivated to learn! App Inventor 1’s goal is to instill an adventurous spirit for students to become little app creators. Our well-trained teachers will also be here to provide help whenever needed!
