In this course girls will use the programming language Swift and Apple’s XCode development environment to design and build their own iPhone apps. In week one, girls will learn the fundamentals of the Swift programming language and build confidence developing in the XCode environment by working on small projects that are designed to teach them the GWC Core4 programming Concepts: loops, variables, conditionals, and functions. In week two, girls will develop their teamwork and leadership skills while applying the Core4 to design, build, and present an iPhone app that solves a social problem or that reflects their interests. At the end of the program each girl will be able to take home their iPhone or iPad app and their project code. Students have the option to bring their own device only if it is a Mac laptop OS Sierra 10.12 or later and they need to be able to install programs and should have all the needed passwords to do so.
