App Inventor is a STEM based program that teaches middle school aged youth how to create mobile apps using MIT's App inventor Software The curriculum consists of a couple of tutorials that teaches youth how to navigate the website and learn the basic steps needed to create apps. Then the next section focuses on students creating their own prototype app. And then lastly students will create a presentation which they will use to compete in a competition at the end of the year where the student with the best app will win a tablet. We have just started running the program at Hackett Middle School every Monday from 3:30-5:15 and will need volunteers for that day & time asap. We need volunteers to act as instructors and complete the lesson plans with the students. We already have a curriculum and lesson plans ready to go. And all materials for the lessons will be prepared before hand for the volunteers. The current App Inventor Instructor will provide training for interested volunteers which will not take more then 2-3 hours. It will be great if the volunteer can dedicate to a set schedule such as every week or every other week We can even have 2-3 who rotate shifts every other week.
