Learning to Code is Emerging as the 21st Century Literacy

There will be a shortage of 1 million Computer Science workers to fill up available tech jobs by 2020, yet 9 out of 10 schools don’t offer computer programming classes.

FREE INFO SESSION

Come and learn more about our hands-on Learn2Code workshops for kids (grades 3 through 11) in Spring 2014.

Attend our free info session to:

• Learn why coding is important

• Understand different coding resources available for kids

• Help your kids get started with coding and continue to do so throughout the year (not just during summer)

• Learn how we're teaching coding to kids through hands-on coding projects

Bring your kids to this awesome info session!

About the Session Hosts:

The free info session will be led by two web developers and user experience experts, Ken and Marco, both of whom have years of experience building products people want and worked for some of the most successful startups in Boston such as eBay, PayPal, Microsoft, WHERE.com, peerTransfer and Jana.

They’re passionate about teaching technology to young people and taught middle and high school students as far as South Africa. Currently both mentor young entrepreneurs in their free time.

They have taught multiple coding workshops in Boston, New York City, Pittsburgh, Harvard Business School and the University of Hawaii. Their upcoming coding workshops include Universities such as Brown, Carnegie Mellon and the Rhode Island School of Design.
