Registration for 2018 COde-A-Thon Opens September 1st

Results of the 2017 Back to school code-a-thon

Our second annual code-a-thon in January of 2017 was again a huge success, which can be seen in the work produced by our students. If you are interested in hosting a location, sponsoring or volunteering for January 26-28th 2018 CLICK HERE, fill out the form, and someone from our team will reach out to discuss further.

During the 2017 program, students invested in their futures by spending their entire weekend learning invaluable technology skills.  With the support of Microsoft and our host partners students learned how to code with HTML5, CSS and JavaScript, while learning how to utilize industry platforms to build websites, and Github to store projects for portfolio development, providing students a unique way to stand out when applying for internships, college applications, and job interviews.  The program was about getting students out of their comfort zones to learn 21st century workforce skills.  

Competing in diverse teams, students worked to explore global issues and create a functional website that offered a solution to a human problem. This weekend was not just about learning to code, it was also about learning to work in teams, solve complex problems, cross collaborate, communicate across time zones and cultures, and most importantly meet new friends and have fun while learning.
