Codeup Teens is a free program where high school students can learn to code during Saturday afternoon sessions with our staff.Sessions run from 1-3pm on the 4th Saturday of each month at the Codeup facility at Geekdom in downtown San Antonio, TX. It’s free.
Why are we doing this?
It’s because of our experience at the SoHacks.com event last weekend at Rackspace HQ, which is the largest high school hackathon in the world. About a third of the students attending did not even own a computer at home. The line to borrow a computer for the weekend was out the door. With so few schools offering programming, many teens in South Texas will go through high school without *any* exposure to programming. That’s got to change. These kids deserve better.Know someone who’s interested? Send them this link:http://codeup20.wpengine.com/teens/
