Garfield HS Apps Club
Like to use & play Apps? Learn to design & build one!!
More Details Coming Soon - Stop by and talk to Mr. Bergquist in 115a!
Here is what we did last year…
What: Spring Semester 2014, Garfield is starting an Apps Club for students to discuss, design, and build Apps of all sorts. Apps have grown in popularity and are a great way for students to express their ideas and interests for creative expression and insightful ways to solve problems of our community. We will meet Tuesday and Thursdays after school in 115a, the computer science classroom and lab, to exchange ideas, learn the Apps design process, master with App Inventor builder and form teams to create Apps of students choosing. So stop by and join us, everyone is welcome.
Big thank you to our club sponsor, the Technology Alliance who brought us the Apps for Good project process, resources to get a bunch of Android tablets, and will be hosting a new App Challenge at the end of the school year with tons of fun prizes and opportunities to show off all that we create.
Help us design our Garfield Apps Club Logo! Got any ideas? Stop by Tuesday or Thursday and make your suggestions.
