ST. CLOUD - A group of St. Cloud area middle and high school students have been hard at work recently developing their own Android mobile apps.

Students spent five days last week developing, testing and downloading their apps on mobile devices. Instructor Frank Ayers says this is the first time that he's taught a summer camp like this, and that the kids have stunned him with their knowledge.

"They're excelling at this and they're willing to try it. They had so many skills coming into this than I could have imagined."

The camp focused on learning math, science, technology and problem solving skills through developing the apps.

Students used an MIT app creator program to develop their ideas into apps.

"This allows you to create your own mobile apps an any android device, which basically uses lego blocks to put it together. It involves a ton of math and a ton of logic."

Each student completed a final product and shared it at the end of the camp.
