Calling all students in grades 7-12!
Jump into computer programming with a week-long introductory course in Ruby. Ruby is a programming language for designing websites, desktop applications, games, and much more! It is has a beginner-friendly syntax--meaning it's a great way to get started!
Gain experience with the basic concepts of programming - variables, conditions, loops, methods and classes. You will build a solid foundation for programming by using Hackety Hack, a free tool for learning and developing with Ruby. No experience necessary! Whether you're just learning to program or have previous knowledge, you will be able to explore and execute ideas with Ruby.
Workshop days will be composed of bite-sized skill development in the morning and independent creative projects in the afternoon.
- This workshop is **FREE**. It is generously sponsored by the Tarrant Institute for Innovative Education at the University of Vermont.
- Space is limited--see registration info below or contact: firstname.lastname@example.org. Students from all schools are invited to attend.
