Build Your Own App
We had a great time on Wednesday at Teen Tech Week at the WalnutCreek Library. The kids were amazing. Smart, capable, determined and very creative.
In our informal workshop, we teach teens how to turn their ideas into reality using the power of technology. The workshop moves through design, basic logic, experience and practice, to an end-product.
It was our first experiment with kids; young minds have a different way of assimilating info. I referred to many of my participatory-design techniques to spark their interest and encourage collaboration.
Here is the material I put together to lead the session:
Teachers | Script for us to guide session
Packet for kids in group A | What animal lover are you
Packet for kids in group B | What’s for dinner
