The youths of today like to play games. These games were programmed by other people. It would be fun if they could program their own games. This is quite easy. With the App Inventor, an application originally developed by Google and now maintained by the (MIT), programming a game can be very easy and can be a good way of waking the interest of young people to programming. The interface is very similar to that of Scratch.
In this online workshop, we shall teach young participants how to program and a game which makes them have fun and also learn to take care of the planet.
