Course Information

Create interactive games with your bare hands!

Coding is all about thinking. Learning to code combines scientific knowledge with creativity and learning a whole new language. It requires high activity of multiple areas in the brain and altogether empowers children. When children code they learn how to express themselves, develop procedural thinking, and strengthen their confidence, they acquire a new set of skills that help them shift from just consuming information to becoming digital creators.

In the App Development Stars course, students will learn the basics of coding Apps and games for smartphones. They will write code for the first time, develop and design their own unique self-made products.

During the course students will learn and implement the following concepts:

  • Programming statements: input, If/else, random and intersect.
  • Variables: using variables to store data.
  • Basic design: inserting media files (video, audio and image) into the app.

Learning Environment



LiveCode provides a smooth transition to the world of code since it uses simple English as syntax. It is also a cross format language allowing you to generate the same code for IOS and Android operating systems.


Welcome to app development!

Welcome to app development introduces students to the foundations of coding.

Hello World

Hello World is the first app that is developed using real syntax writing. The app allows texts to appear and disappear as a consequence of different textual inputs.

Tekkie Uni teaching team

Tekkie Uni’s teachers are highly experienced in teaching coding for children. They are the heart of the class, teaching online with enthusiasm, encouraging participation and happy to answer every child’s question.

How we make it work

TekkieUni specializes in operating live-online sessions with full real-time interaction guided by an experienced and attentive teacher, because we believe that with a little help every child who wants to learn – can!

  • Learning together

    Learning is all about connecting. That's why we use a video conference software allowing the small size group of children to get to know each other and their teacher. The teacher uses a shared screen option so everyone can see what they are doing on their desktop, and kids can fully participate in the lesson by using the microphone or the chat.
  • Hands-on experience

    In addition to the weekly live lessons, students are invited to join a live weekly Q&A session with a teacher present in class. The session is dedicated to provide personal assistance with students' projects, exercises and questions. All the live lessons and practice sessions are automatically recorded and available for students during the course.
  • Project-Based Learning

    Students learn by doing and work on interest-based projects, which create a fun class dynamics where we don't present the answers but look for them together.
