Petrosains Science Festival 2016 - Coding with Chumbaka: Coding 101 with App Inventing and Scratch


We spend more time online than with any other media, and much of that time is spent on mobile apps. Mobile apps are computer programs designed to run on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers.

In this workshop, participants will learn how to create their own mobile app, which they can then customize and explore on their own. No prior experience is necessary, as participants will be guided through the process. The programming language used is App Inventor, developed by MIT.

Audience: 8 years old and above

The mission of Chumbaka, a social business start-up of DreamCatcher, is to re-ignite children’s inborn passion to learn. We hope to inspire everyone, parents included, to become life-long learners (and hence save the human race, as explained in Big History!). Chumbaka Sdn Bhd is located at Persiaran Apec, Cyberjaya, Selangor.

About PETROSAINS Science Festival:

The Petrosains Science Festival is Petrosains’ initiative to provide a unified platform for communities in the fields of science and technology, such as the industry players and science academia, to come together for the common purpose of engaging and inspiring the Malaysian public, especially the younger generation, to the wonders of science and technology. The festival is similar to other such events held in major cities such as Edinburgh, Manchester, New York and Singapore, and is another step taken by Petrosains to play our role as a leading science centre and important supporting component to the country’s educational landscape. Through this Festival, we hope to further contribute to the popularizing of science to the public that combines the engaging and interactive Petrosains approach with the day-to-day relevance that industry and academia partners will bring.
