This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.

Interactive Coding for Kids
In this hands-on class, students explore Scratch programming, using the MIT-developed programming interface to craft stories andgames. Then we will use Makey Makey boards to invent new ways to interact with the Scratch projects using everyday objects. Ourcircuitry projects will become musical instruments, video game controllers, pressure sensors, and more. Students will learn valuable21st-century skills while engaging in these fun, creative lessons. Collaborative project challenges enhance teamwork skills and inspire critical thinking. No prior coding experience required.

App Inventors
Want to know how the apps work on your phone or iPad? Or do you already have the next great app idea, and just need to knowhow to make it? In this no-experience-required course, we use MIT App Inventor software to make fun, creative apps for Androidphones and tablets. We will also explore wireless communication by building custom Bluetooth hardware controllers and readoutsfor our apps. Participants will learn both the programming and design aspects of creating great apps, and have the opportunity tobuild apps of their own with the support of Circuit Lab instructors.
