Details

Many older kids are ready to make their first aps on the platforms they use every day. Our middle school and high school kids are connected to their phones and soon their watches and TVs. The Marvel App Prototyping platform helps you design great apps before you take the steps of digging deep into the coding.

Our instructor, Annie, will teach you how to brainstorm and plan out your app idea and use the Marvel platform to test out your first ideas. There will be plenty of working together in teams and talking through your ideas with others. The Marvel platform lets you test out your design ideas interactively.

Annie will discuss tips for great app design and teach about important design concepts in wireframing and prototyping.
