Intro to Java, App Inventor and Beyond

October 16, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


This program is offered to 20 girls of grades 6-9. In 11 2-hour weekend classes, we plan to introduce programming and app creation using App Inventor from MIT. This will include the use of hands-on labs and online tutorials from MIT as learning materials. We will then cover the basics of Java Programming, and expose students to programming Arduino micro-controller systems. In addition, we plan to invite a female senior manager from Intel as our guest speaker, and have a field trip to a local company or college. By the end of the program, we hope that the students will have the basic skills necessary to make useful apps, grow their interests in app development and becoming makers.

The classes are taught by Elaine Yang, a sophomore at Sunset High, Jin Yang, a Principal Engineer at Intel, and a few others, and will be held on Sundays 3-5pm, 10/16, 10/23, 10/30, 11/06, 11/13, 11/20, 12/04, 12/11, 2/05, 2/12, 2/19 at the Tektronix Beaverton campus at 14150 SW Karl Braun Dr, Beaverton, OR 97005. There will be a one-time $40 fee to partially cover class activities and materials. If you are interested, please sign up at

This program is sponsored by NCWIT (National Center for Women & Information Technology) AspireIT, with Elaine Yang as the program leader and the Tech for Kids Club as the partner and co-sponsor.
