Tesla's Toolbox Project for January is App Development

Written by: developer

The Space Foundation’s monthly tinkering program has a new name – Tesla’s Toolbox. One Saturday each month, come tinker at the Discovery Center and meet fellow tinkerers while working on exciting and challenging projects.

Our workshop project on Jan. 23 will be app development. Participants will learn the basic skills and steps needed to create an app for a smart device. This is a great opportunity for beginners to see what the world of app development is like. Come to the Discovery Center at 10:00 a.m. and bring your own smart device.
