Creating Apps with 6-Year Old Girls (and their Dads)



Hannah Dee describes the 'Android Programming Family Fun Day', a one day AppInventor workshop introducing kids and their parents to mobile phone programming.


Hannah Dee is a lecturer in computer science at Aberystwyth University, where she does research into computer vision and robotics whilst trying to teach undergraduates about web programming. She believes that computer science is an interesting and fun field for work, study and play... but that schools don't often manage to get that across.
