Join us for Saturday workshops of tech-focused excitement!

We are hosting introductory workshops using different pieces of tech with a focus on programming, looping in relevant and current applications, and showing the exciting possibilities of the tech industry through digital skills literacy! These will all be ONLINE instead of in-person. We ask that you still register via the register now button above so that we have an accurate count of attendees. Information about the online platform and access will be sent out via email prior to the event.

 

You do not need any prior knowledge or experience in coding to participate! We will be introducing content tailored to elementary school students – please note that both the March 28th and April 4th events will feature the same curriculum. All events are free of cost – you will need a device (laptop, tablet etc.) at home in order to participate

 


FAQ

Don’t be discouraged! We often open up a couple of seats a few days before our events due to cancellations. We encourage you to still sign up!

At this time both the upcoming events will feature the same curriculum. We hope to offer more in the future at which point we welcome you to sign up for multiple session. At this point please choose either the session on March 28th or the one on April 4th.
