App Inventor 2 - Course Contents
Week One: Music Maker
In this unit, students will make a music app as a follow-up to the MyPiano app made in the previous level. Students are encouraged to design their own musical app using sound effects and instrument recordings, with provided images and matching music/sound recordings. They can also add their own images and sounds as an added advantage. This unit allows students to reinforce previously learned Computational Thinking concepts such as events, parallelism and repetition. Students will reuse and remix code from the MyPiano app. Students will also practice being incremental and iterative, as well as testing and debugging.
WEEK TWO: Food Chase Game
Students will create a game app where the user controls a red ball with a flinging action. The ball chases food ImageSprites to ‘eat’ and grow in size. A green ball must be avoided. If the red ball collides with the green ball, the game ends. Students will get more practice with procedures, creating a Restart procedure to reset ImageSprites. They also will learn how to use conditionals to check for collision of ImageSprites with the red ball. They will also use a conditional to test for user input when the game ends.
WEEK THREE: Make a Game
Students will create their own game apps using components and blocks they learned in previous units: Find The Gold and Food Chase. Students are given more time to experience the full process, from ideation, to design, to abstracting, and modularizing. When applying the design in their code, students will reuse and remix what they have learned and code their blocks accordingly. Finally, they will receive user’s feedback to direct modifications, along with testing and debugging.
Students choose to build upon a previous app, or design a new app, showcasing the skills they have learned during the course. The students will make an app to help someone in their community. Students learn the design process, provide feedback, and learn from others’ feedback to build a minimum viable product.

Chimdi Jane Samuel - Queen of codes
Chimdi Jane Samuel is an undergraduate student of the University of Lagos. She started teaching kids how to code in 2019, together with Teens Can Code and Google CS First, to which she registered as a volunteer. She was able to complete a week teaching to Introduction to Computer Science, and programming using Scratch. During this excersice, along with her colleagues, they were able to empower about 50 kids to build thier own animations.
A few months after that, together with Teens Can Code and Microbit, she also volunteered to teach kids of age 10-15 how to program a Microbit using Scratch. (The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that introduces you to how software and hardware work together). After a successful exercise, the children were able to program the microbit to show display numbers and play music.
