Whether you have never coded before or already know how, this event is for you. Everyone will work to hone their coding skills and use them to make a difference. New coders will learn to code in less than 90 minutes and then make their own games. Experienced coders will take part in a mini-challenge with other students to solve a universal issue that impacts students of all ages – bullying/harassment.
This short event is only 3 hours long but will include a workshop introducing Java as a programing language. Students can then work on developing a game, an application, or social media campaign to address bullying/harassment in their schools and/or communities.
For more information and to register visit http://tinyurl.com/pdsCode16 Registration is limited to 50 students. This is a bring your own computing device event.
Come hack with us. Extend a coding invite to those who may be interested. We can all learn together.
