Research at Home: Coding and App Creation
Coding can be a project in and of itself or a tool to enhance a project in any subject area.
Whether coding is a mystery to you or you are an expert, here are some resources, opportunities and ideas for you to take it to the next level for your research project!
Learn to Code and Create Apps
There are many great resources to learn from. Here are a few our team recommends:
Try out an Express Course, do an Hour of Code, or drop by Code Studio!
Have 15 minutes? Play this game and code your hero through their quest!
Congressional App Challenge
This STEM Action Grant recipient can put you on the path to creating your own app!
