Code mobile game and apps with curiously fun classes

Learn how to code mobile apps in small, live group sessions. Every year, many billions of apps are downloaded to mobile phones. However, building high quality mobile apps has been beyond reach to younger coders. But not any more!

Throughout this course, students will learn how to create fun apps and games for mobile devices. It is also a great way deepen your child's computational thinking skills and learn how to apply key coding concepts in different scenarios.

The class uses Thunkable, a block based programming platform for professionals. It is easy to use, yet very powerful, and is used by many to develop commercial applications. Some key things student will learn about mobile programming are:

  • Design layout and UI of mobile applications

  • Enable various UI elements for display information, data inputs, and event handling

  • Use different mobile features such as device sensors, touch screen, gyroscope, camera, and more

  • Build  projects and fun games that involve image recognition, popular use cases, and fun activities. 

  • Create complex  applications that involve networking  and multi-user apps!

  • Learn advanced cloud computing concepts such as cloud variables, cloud storage of image data, Airtable, Firebase, and authentication.

After taking this class, you child will be comfortable with building a wide range of mobile games and apps, and can apply them to various school projects, science challenges and competitions, and even build a simple app for a real business. A great competition to participate after this class is the Congressional App Challenge held by US Congress every year.

  • Build your very first mobile app in this fun-filled introduction class and open up a brand new world of possibilities for your child in learning computer science. Students will start learning how to design the layout of mobile apps and code the active components to build a riddle game with live instruction. This class will also give your child a sense of what it is like to go deeper in developing mobile apps. Sign up for this trial class with an average of 5 students per class!

  • In this course, students will learn the basics of the mobile programming environment and how to code their very own apps. They will explore how to employ text, device sensors, and even the camera to build projects and games that involve image recognition, word games, and riddles!
  • This unit will build on mobile and computational concepts from the first unit. Students will learn how to build more complex and fun game applications, as well as networking and multi-user apps!
  • In this level, we will build 2 fun games, including a multiplayer game, as well as a cool app for you to store our favorite items. The advanced mobile coding concepts we are learning include cloud variables, storing image data, arrays, and more.
