The Idea Incubator unit – including App Coding!

banner-idea-incubatorThe Idea Incubator project tasks students to come up with a unique invention or innovative idea that has the potential to positively influence the world. They then develop their idea by working through the stages of the Design Cycle, learning to code and developing an App through Code.org’s App Lab, and working to solidify their ideas using supportive data analyzed and graphed via Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets.  At the end of the unit, all student their ideas to a panel of real life female entrepreneurs and business leaders!  Think: Invention Convention meets the reality TV show The Shark Tank!

App Lab

This unit introduces the foundational concepts of computer programming, which unlocks the ability to make rich, interactive apps. This course uses JavaScript as the programming language, and App Lab as the programming environment to build apps, but the concepts learned in these lessons span all programming languages and tools.
