This Library NExT class is a follow-the-leader, cutting edge, hands-on programming course that teaches the basics of Android app design. Participants work in groups to create an app background screen and add their own enhancements including pictures, drawing canvases, and buttons. Students will also create three simple Android apps:  1) Talk to text converter, 2) Ball Bounce App, and 3) Paint App. Students will use MIT App Inventor tool to learn the elements of Android application design and programming and test their apps using the MIT Companion App on an Android phone.

Each student will need to have an Email ID in order to access the App Inventor program. Students who do not have an email will be able to use a temporary email that we will set up for them during class. All equipment will be provided. No prior computer experience required.
