This year, our workshop will provide a deep dive into MIT App Inventor, the blocks-based programming system for Android devices.
We'll be working directly with App Inventor each of the three days. We'll also develop approaches for including App Inventor into your computer science, technology, mathematics, or science curriculum.
So this year's event is specifically designed for teachers who plan to introduce App Inventor to their students during the 2013-2014 school year. As part of the conference registration, we will require a letter from your department head or principal, attesting to your institution's support of your plans to bring App Inventor to your students.
As in past years, we will also have short, fun faculty research talks, networking and conversation time, and an evening social event (on Thursday July 25).
Our event is supported with a grant from Google Education. We require a registration fee of $100 to help us cover all of the workshop costs.
Thanks to the Google grant, we are able to provide lodging for a small number of non-local participants. If you live more than 90 minutes (one-way) commute to Lowell, follow the instructions on the registration form for requesting lodging. Please note: our travel support from the Google grant is fully allocated, and we can no longer make this offer.

May 7, 2013 update: We have just received approval of funding from the NSF ECEP Alliance, and we are delighted to offer 10 more spots to teachers who can self-support their travel to the conference! Please register for the "Local Teacher (ECEP-supported)" ticket.
