FunTech have been at the forefront of teaching kids since 1996. In that time, we have seen thousands of students pass through our doors. Whilst a lot of technology has changed over the years, our approach never has… to keep up with the times and keep children engaged.
One subject that has become more popular is app development. With the increased use of tablets and smartphones over the last 10 years, we had requests from parents whose kids wanted to develop their own mobile apps and games.
To accommodate for this growing trend and demand, we launched two new summer camps; Indie Game Builder and Python Game Developer. You can see both of these below, including the age ranges they are most suitable for.
App development for kids
Here are our two most popular app development classes for kids running this summer.
Our Indie Game Builder camp is great introduction to app development for kids. Our tutors use hands-on exercises and projects to teach your child the skills and techniques required to design and build an interactive game or mobile app.
It includes an introduction to core coding concepts and how to export and publish their apps and games. At the end of the week, your child will take home their app or game and will be able to use their new skills to create even more from home.
These kids’ app development classes have been designed for children who already have some coding experience and are looking to progress the next level. Your child will learn the power of object-oriented programming (OOP) and apply these skills to create an impressive collection of interactive 2D game projects and apps to take home.
By the end of the week your child will be a more complete all-round coder and could be well on their way to become an app development in the future!
