And after the apps ready, it can be exported using QR Code or as .apk to be downloaded to computer, and run with a simulator.

As the beginning, we create a button that will display a picture when it is clicked

Thunkable use drag and drop coding (very similar to Blockly)

A recommended simulator is KoPlayer (for PC) or BlueStacks (for Windows and Mac). This is how the app looks like on BlueStacks for Mac

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class 11 June 2016 – Thunkable

Standard

Today we learned new things and we got newcomers too 🙂 We got Tyo and Muhammad joining the class 🙂

IMG_3806

We tried Thunkable, a spin out of AppInventor to create apps and deploy it to Android phones 🙂 This is a part of Coding Camp’s preparation, we tested all materials for Coding Camp in Regular Classes so we can find out any troubles that might occurs beforehand.

Awa, the youngest one was given another task: creating games with Kodu 🙂
IMG_3808

While Prudence and Clarence picking up where they left on Python CodeAcademy 🙂

IMG_3809

So most of the kids worked on Thunkable
IMG_3810

The apps created with Thunkable can be run on Android phones or if the kids don’t have smartphones, they can download the .apk and run the apps on this simulator, KoPlayer 🙂 Thanks to Faris for recommending this useful simulator 😉

IMG_3811

Muhammad, our newcomer seemed to love working on CodeCombat 🙂 He learned about sequence and loops today 🙂
IMG_3812

And here’s our lead captain keeping up with Coding Camp preparation 😉

IMG_3813

And another captain: Malik was working on an unbelievable project in Java! Pure Java (no Greenfoot) with Eclipse as the IDE.
IMG_3814

And this captain, Faris, has gone very far on codeSaya.com. He started to learn OOP in Python 😀

IMG_3815

These two, Prudence and Clarence were bored with CodeAcademy so they were tinkering around with HTML and JavaScript 🙂

While these guys working in groups on Reza’s computer 🙂

IMG_3819

So everybody’s got their thing to do 🙂 It might be different topics in different languages but they’re all doing some coding! 🙂
IMG_3820

We still have a week for Coding Camp preparation, and we make sure all Captains are ready! This Lead Captain has to make sure everything goes right 😉
