National Science Foundation Grant for Teaching App Inventor

The National Science Foundation has awarded a $565,836 grant in support of mobile programming education with App Inventor. Its
a TUES Grant, which stands for Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

The project involves Wellesley College, MIT, Trinity, U. Mass, Lowell, and the University of San Francisco (my school). We’ll be building on-line, Khan-academy-like tools for App Inventor, with the goal of teaching computational thinking to beginners, especially non-CS-students. Many thanks to Franklyn Turbak of Wellesley, who led the proposal process, and Hal Abelson of MIT who leads the App Inventor project. Here are all the Project leads:

Hal Abelson, MIT

Lyn Turbak, Wellesley

Ralph Morelli, Trinity

Fred Martin, UMass-Lowell

David Wolber, USF

  1. Congratulations!! Keep it up and I would love to help out in anyway.

    The new Kahn-academy CS is definitely one of the best efforts in on-line CS education and it would be great to see something similar built around the amazing capabilities of App Inventor.

  4. National Science Foundation did good work or we can say that foundation serve Education using good way. Granting for Teaching App Inventor to different schools free of cost. Which may help to improve the quality of edcuation. Its a good effort done by the whole team of that Foundation. atari stickers
