Each class day gives participants the chance to design a hands-on project with the guidance of skilled Circuit Lab instructors.Each afternoon, we will explore APPS!  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 know how to make it?  In this no-experience-required course course, we use MIT App Inventor software to make fun, creative apps for Android phones and tablets. Participants will learn both the programming and design aspects of creating great apps, and have the opportunity to build apps of their own design with the support of Circuit Lab instructors.*PLEASE NOTE:  The half-day option will feature only Hands-On Electronics programming.*
