Objective: To introduce youth, 12 - 17 years,  to neccessary attributes for success in mobile app development for business, education, and the STEM industries:

          • Calculated Risk Taking

            Resource Description: 

            The Appathon1000™ Mobile App Learning Resource utilizes “block-based” coding rather than “higher level” JavaScript coding. 

            As a first exposure to app development, “block-based”  coding is becoming more and more popular as an introduction to concepts that are common to all app development languages. Concepts and functionalities such as:

            • Asset (images, video, sound) naming conventions
            • Animation and Image Sprites (for gaming apps)
            • Boolean statements (True/False)
            • Conditional statements (If/Then)
            • How to use API’s (application programming interfaces, such as GPS services)
            • Local data/ cloud data  C.R.U.D. (Create, Read, Update, Delete) functions

            Pre-requisites: Purchase and download of the following apps: 

            All apps are $1.99 one time only! 

            These  apps contain all of the concepts and  functionalities mentioned above, that are typical of many apps; whether game apps, educational apps, or commercial apps.

            Upon completion of registration by the parent or guardian, youth participants will have access to fully functional  Thunkable Apps, for remix, to create their own apps! 

            Participants will receive a Tutorial List of 12 full functional apps, created using Thunkable, in order of challenge: Beginner, Intermedia, Advanced

            Participants are expected to create a "unique" version of the Tutorial App, created using Thunkable, to be submitted to the mentor for review, in order to receive credit for completion of the Tutorial exercise.

            Zoom Orientation sessions are scheduled regularly to provide mentorship, encouragement, and assistance.
