High Schoolers Invited to Learn to Make a Mobile App

The Western UP Center for Science, Math and Environmental Education, based at Michigan Tech, is offering a four-week class for students in grades 9-12, covering the fundamentals of computer programming for Android mobile devices, graphic design and mobile app development. Students will work in small teams to create a working Android mobile app for a community or school organization.

The class will be taught at Houghton High School, Room 124, from 3:45-5:30 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays, starting March 17. Classes will not meet during the public schools’ spring break. There will be one class on Wednesday, April 9.

The class is free and no experience is required. It will be taught by Chad Norman, a science and technology outreach specialist with Michigan Tech’s Center for Science and Environmental Outreach.
