I'm forwarding a message below from Brad Hoos, co-founder of Grand Circus in Detroit, about a teaching opportunity for teaching Ruby to high schools students in detroit. This seems like a cool opportunity to me, so I told Brad I'd reach out to the Ruby group here. Contact Brad if you're interested.
I've got a really interesting opportunity for those of you who might be interested in teaching Ruby to Detroit high school students. Grand Circus is running a 10-week program to teach 10th grade students how to code using Ruby. Through this program, students will learn: 1) how the web works 2) how to write basic code (using Ruby) and 3) Create a basic customized website.
This is a great chance to truly help Detroit in a meaningful way and build the eco-system of technologists by teaching high school students about the great power of code. If you're interested in being a teacher, please reach out to Brad Hoos [[address removed]], the co-founder of Grand Circus. Classes will be from 1:30 - 4:30 M & W at Grand Circus in downtown Detroit beginning in February and going through mid-April. This is a paid opportunity!
