Coding for Kids 3

Create Your Own App with App Inventor

by Monica Oriani Cauduro



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
After books on basic coding with Scratch and creating animated stories, this third entry in the CODING FOR KIDS series teaches children how to make their own apps using App Inventor—the free, open-access software for Android from MIT.
Created by Google, and currently the property of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), App Inventor is an application development environment (ADE) for Android. Intended to teach beginner programmers how to create and develop simple applications, it’s a straightforward and intuitive interface that uses blocks of color and different shapes that fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. This easy-to-follow guide gives children step-by-step instructions for producing their own projects using the latest version, App Inventor 2. It focuses on video games, game rooms, stories, quizzes, and finally, animation, music, and colors, showing kids how to personalize their work using all the potential of this incredible open-source tool.

Monica Oriani Cauduro studied graphic design and earned a degree in architecture. Later on, she studied block programming, Logo, and robotics for kids. She has been a full-time programmer for about 20 years and coordinates coding projects in schools and summer camps for children aged 5 to 14.
