This bootcamp will focus on mobile app development with Android AppInventor. AppInventor is a fun and simple tool that allows our young code divas to create their own mobile apps using drag­and­drop the programming blocks similar to a puzzle to make the user interface and program. No prior programming experience is required for this class.
The program will cost 2,000 KES per student.
Are you a girl aged between 15 and 18? Or do you know a girl between these ages who would be interested in participating? Sign up on this eventbrite page AND Get in touch with Marie Githinji via for details on how to handle payment, with the name and school of the student.
