Meet the designers of a new Android app–a Shrek-themed soundboard app, to be exact. These teens, students at Hamilton Southeastern High School, are creating the app as part of Programming I, HSE High School’s introductory computer programming course. Student duos have used MIT’s App Inventor software to design their apps, and are now in the testing phase. Along with the apps, students are building Google Sites with pages to showcase and share their creativity. By year’s end, each teen’s Google Site will have grown into a well-rounded digital portfolio of his/her computer programming experiences and products. Look out, Silicon Valley. The young innovators of Fishers, Indiana are off and running!
