Learning computing by building mobile apps

In December 2010, Google introduced App Inventor for Android, a visual programming environment that makes it easy to create apps for Android phones. Prof. Abelson, who worked on App Inventor during his sabbatical last year, is planning to include the system in a new course this fall. He’s looking for help in developing good examples and creating extensions to the system, maybe even teaching summer workshops for kids. To work on this project, you should have some experience with Python (6.00 or 6.01) and an interest in mobile apps and educational technology.
