Web Apps

Web Apps

Grades 5+

Ruby-on-Rails is one of the most beginner-friendly web application frameworks. It's been used as the foundation for many popular web apps, including Twitter, Groupon, Airbnb and Genius.

Students learn how to build fully-functional, database-backed web apps. Students work with HTML, CSS, Ruby and JavaScript to learn all fundamental aspects of object-oriented coding, including classes, methods, logic, loops, variables and coding design. We recommend that students are comfortable typing on a keyboard before starting any of our Web App projects.

MIT App Inventor

MIT App Inventor

Grades 2+

MIT App Inventor is a drag and drop framework for building Android and iOS mobile applications. It's the easiest way for students to get up and running with mobile development.

Students still learn coding fundamentals, like logic, loops and variables, but do so in a beginner-friendly environment that focuses on the big ideas instead of spelling and grammar.
