The remarkably continuous penetration of smartphones into Africa and the availability of the free and open source Python programming capabilities as QPython (QP) in smartphones meets the accessibility requirement to make them mobile computational laboratory (MCL). We present here one of our current projects under the Python African Computational Science and Engineering Tour Project (PACSETPro) of using QP as MCL for teaching programming and development of smartphone Apps to students, new beginners as well as expert programmers anywhere, anytime and anyhow.
