Create your own app. The course combines the creation of mobile apps along with programming that goes beyond the virtual world into the physical world. Students are challenged to creatively use sensors and actuators to develop systems that interact with their environment. They will code and upload programs to microcontrollers to create wearable technology, interactive art , or other devices. Students will also collaboratively design and develop an android mobile app to solve a real-world problem. This course is based around the ‘App Creators’ and ‘Computer Science for Innovators and Makers’ units of the Project Lead the Way Gateway program.
