Last week, the Mubaloo office met a number of children from Mead Village Primary School in Glastonbury. As a recognised leader in mobile app development, Mubaloo was approached to provide a mobile app crash course to fourteen 10 year old students.
The students were two years old when the iPhone first came out – for many of them, the first computer they touched was a smartphone. Over the past few years, coding skills have become a core part of 21st century education, touching on mathematical skills, problem solving and creativity.
As a mobile first generation, this coding day was an opportunity for us to inspire the minds of next generation developers.
During the morning the children were taught the process of how to build their very own app. Taking the concept of a “Selfie App”, our team designers and developers showed them how to wireframe the app, followed by a hands on demonstration of coding for iOS and Android.
Head of Operations, James Tipler said “It was great to give something back to the community, helping young children achieve their ambitions of becoming app designers and developers. It gives them the experience they need at a young age which will hugely benefit them in the future.”
Mark Mason, CEO of app developer Mubaloo was very happy to give the go ahead to this school having worked with the Prince’s Trust for a number of years as Chairman of its leadership team.
Mead Village’s Head Teacher said, My children have just arrived back at school and are absolutely buzzing. You have provided them a totally unforgettable experience. They have loved every single second.The staff here at Mead Village are also raving about your company and said you made them feel so welcome. I really can’t thank you and your team enough.
We are thrilled that the children enjoyed their day here and we hope to see them as part of the Mubaloo team in the future.
