About APPlied Club
APPlied Club is an after-school club designed to teach high school students valuable career skills through the process of app development. APPlied Club is proudly sponsored by Campfire Apps, a local app development company in Baltimore, Maryland.
APPlied Club aims to reach students through mobile app development and by meeting them where they are…on their devices! Students interact with their devices every day and know so much about how to use them, but often know very little about the work that goes into producing the user experiences they are so comfortable with. We hope to give them a better understanding and appreciation for the process of developing new technologies while promoting feelings of pride and excitement in their own creations.
The goals of APPlied Club are to encourage teens to become producers versus consumers by giving them the tools to create products of which they have ownership and to teach students about potential careers in technology and mobile development. The mobile development field is so young and offers so many opportunities in a variety of related areas: design, marketing, writing, and of course, programming, and we want to introduce students to the possibilities available in this field. Most importantly, APPlied Club aims to demonstrate and instill project-based learning outcomes such as task management, cooperation, collaboration, and evaluation which are skills crucial to success in college and any career students may find themselves in.
We are passionate about technology and mobile development and want to share our enthusiasm with students who also love technology. Over the coming year we hope to expand APPlied Club in a variety of ways, which you can keep apprised of here, on this site.
