App Inventor Workshop


Free demo class App Inventor Workshop

Learn about the full cycle of app design – from the first draft of its logic to the app publication.

After the course students:

Independently create advanced apps in MIT App Inventor

Know the app production cycle – from the analysis of requirements and user needs through the coding phase up to the app publication

Create their own resources for the projects

Implement safety rules

Create and debug code and run on-device app tests

Analyse and visualize data in accordance with the project specifications

Course description

During this course students design Android apps by customising advanced components of the App Inventor platform. They prepare resources needed to build an app – create or download graphics, sounds and other multimedia. They learn the principles of design thinking and apply them in the process of app design. They learn how to add animations and simulations to the app, they build their own algorithms or use the existing ones. They create and debut the app program, they learn how to handle exceptions, and they run on-device app tests. Students also become familiar with cybersecurity rules in the app design process. They implement encryption algorithms, create apps using databases, and analyse and visualise data in the app according to the project requirements.

An Android device (a phone or a tablet) is necessary to test the app.

Learning Environment

The course is conducted according to the Kids Coder Lab blended-learning approach. The fully web-based course content is combined with off-screen activities. Children are in a safe learning environment, designed specifically with them in mind. They have access to study materials to continue learning at home, and access to teacher’s help online.

Additional free service

This course is available with a free-of-charge Pick & Drop service in one of two options:

  • Pick & Drop for students attending a school in the proximity of our Wilanów office. We pick children from their school after regular classroom activities and bring them to our Wilanów Kids Coder Lab office. After the programming classes, we drop them back at their school.
  • Pick & Drop for students attending our Host Schools. We pick children from their designated classrooms and bring them to the computer lab dedicated for Kids Coder Lab lessons. After programming classes, we drop them back at their classroom.

Frequent questions

Our offer of programming courses includes tens of items, so we recommend using filters to narrow down the choice. Firstly, select the location which is most conveniently reached with the child or from which we can pick the child. In the second step, select the language of instruction in which the child will learn (we offer courses in English and Polish). Next, notice the age group and choose the appropriate one for the child. After filtering the courses, there will be one or several courses left. Now you can read the course descriptions and select the course which best suits the child’s interests.

The first class of each coding course can be always a trial class. You can enrol the child in it with no commitments, just select the right option on the enrolment form. After the first class, we will ask you to confirm whether the child will participate in the course and if so, to pay the course fee.

Age groups specified for the programming courses for children and teens are our recommendation, not strict guidelines. However, they are worth taking into account. Our experience tells us that children below the recommended age group will do well during the course if they meet one or more of the following conditions:

- feel well handling the computer,

- have completed other programming-related courses or programming exercises at home,

- have experience in cooperation with older children, e.g. attend other courses with older children or spend a lot of time with older siblings at home.

The most important thing is to encourage the child to learn programming and not discourage from it. Only some children will find working with older students to be a motivation for learning. For most it would be a difficult and discouraging experience.

Considering enrolling a child in a course designed for older children, it is worth to think about the natural milestones in the child’s development – to which our courses are adjusted. The first important milestone is learning how to read. Children who don’t know yet how to read, learn at our school only in the youngest age group for grades 0–2. The second milestone is the transition from block-based to text-based coding. In our programming courses for children we gradually introduce elements of text-based coding, beginning from the second grade. However, only courses for the sixth and higher grades are solely based on text-based coding. We know from experience that only a handful of young programmers from the fifth grade are able to successfully complete these courses. The majority of the children needs to “grow into” the purely text-based coding which requires a lot of patience. We do not recommend skipping this phase too quickly, ahead of the child’s natural abilities.

If, having considered all these factors, you still have doubts about the right group, let the child try our classes. Already after the first class in both age groups it will be possible to draw conclusions and discuss the child’s abilities with the instructors. Then you can choose the group that is best suited to your child’s needs.

Why coding for children?

A new language

A new language

Coding is like learning a new language. Children learn to program using on-screen games, visual programming languages and actual coding scripts before they can decipher the complex math behind coding at the college level.

Window to new opportunities

Window to new opportunities

Learning early a skill, such as coding, provides diverse opportunities and empowerment for the future enabling children to have a wider imagination of possibilities and creativity.

Creative self-expression

Creative self-expression

Children seamlessly move from simply interacting with technology to creating technology for creative self-expression in various ways.

Critical skills

Critical skills

Coding enhances children’s math and analytical skills, including logical communication and critical thinking, which results in better writing skills.

Resilience and patience

Resilience and patience

Children learn how to be resilient, practise patience and build up confidence as they tackle challenging problem-solving tasks through coding.

Planning and organisation

Planning and organisation

Coding teaches children how to focus, be precise and develop planning and organisational skills, which they acquire naturally as they write more complex codes.
