There will be classes and mentors to help coders of all skill levels, plus workshops about the fun things that are possible when you know computer programming. Also, food. Lots of good food. And t-shirts.
After the coding is over, all the kids will have a chance to present their project to their peers in a "show and tell" session. Expert judges will choose winning teams and award awesome prizes at the closing ceremony, open to families and the general public on Saturday evening (family members need to reserve seats for the closing reception, but the coders are covered under their registration).
While there is a registration fee, scholarships are available. To be eligible for a scholarship, participants must write a paragraph explaining why they love coding or why they want to take part in the code challenge! Paragraphs can be submitted to David Herrera at the email below.
If you're undecided and need some convincing, or if you have any questions, please contact Alicia Holmes at firstname.lastname@example.org or David Herrera at email@example.com and we'll do our best to get you excited!
