Tech Titans Mobile App Academy
June 17–20, 2019
Discover the art of computer programming.
Tech Titans is a four-day commuter academy (no overnight) in which students design and create their own functional mobile applications from start to finish. Participants will work in small teams to plan, develop and program their apps using Android tablet devices. The academy is centered on tutorial-based instruction, so students will learn as they create!
Sessions are led by UW Oshkosh professors with student mentors giving one-on-one support to participants. The program kicks off with computer programing fundamentals and moves into more advanced techniques with each session. The final session of the academy involves group presentations with girls demonstrating their mobile apps for classmates, friends and family.
The Academy includes:
- Introduction to programming
- Writing and understanding code
- Design fundamentals
- App development
- Team-building exercises
