What is Mobile CSP?

Mobile CSP is an AP Computer Science Principles course that focuses on mobile computing:

  • Build socially useful mobile apps
  • Project-based focus
  • Emphasis on writing & communication
  • Fosters collaboration & creativity

As of Fall 2017, Mobile CSP is being taught in 400+ schools in 42 states across the country, including over 100 schools in Connecticut and Massachusetts with teacher professional development (PD) in the summer and academic year support.

About this course

Learn to use the open development tool, App Inventor, to program on Android devices. You will learn how to design and build mobile apps — apps that are aware of their location, send and receive text messages, and give advice and directions. The only limit on the types of apps you will learn to build is your own imagination!

However, computer science is not just about coding and building apps. We will also learn some of  the fundamental principles of computer science. We’ll learn about the potential and the limitations of computing and coding. We’ll learn how the Internet works and about the positive and negative aspects of computing in today’s society, and much more!

For these broader computing concepts we will work within an emerging curricular framework — the Computer Science Principles (CSP). The CSP framework is being developed by leading computer science educators from around the country under the auspices of the College Board and with funding support of the National Science Foundation.

In addition to programming and CSP the course is project-based and emphasizes writing, communication, and creativity. Multiple-choice questions, in the style that students can expect to encounter on the AP exam, will also be a key component of this course.
