mobile app development


Recommended Grades: 6th – 8th grade

If your child is in the following districts/schools, please inquire directly with your district/school as we may be offering this program at little to no cost. 

About the Program

AppJam+ is a 10 week mobile app development program that makes programming concepts fun and accessible to encourage students and to explore STEAM education in a new and exciting way.

Over the course of 30+ hours, student teams will develop their own Android mobile application based around a seasonal theme. We partner with local schools and organizations to run AppJam+ twice a year in Fall and Spring.

We encourage meaningful experiences for students, introduce the possibilities of STEAM careers, and create fun memories students will love to share. 

*Can be conducted Virtually or In-Person
