Summary

The world is changing quickly and education needs to change with it. While most students have exposure to core subjects such as maths and science, few have a chance to get to grips with the innovations that shape society. One of the most significant changes of the past decade is the rise of smartphones and apps, which have become an integral part of everyday life.

MORE
On Tech Immerse’s App Development programme, participants will spend two weeks learning about some of the technological advancements in the world of application development and programming. This will include gaining a key grounding in the theory behind creating apps, as well as practical experience of building an app of their own. On the stunning grounds of Royal Hospital School, participants will have access to exceptional facilities where they will benefit from the expert tutelage of our passionate teaching staff.
