WHAT WE'LL BE DOING

This code jam is meant to be a semi-unstructured, individualized-learning, creativity-inspiring experience for youth. No experience required! There is no strict agenda. There will be multiple stations. When kids arrive, we'll describe each of the stations, and then you and your child will be free to choose where you want to spend your time. This gives your child the opportunity to work on the projects he or she finds personally interesting. Some kids will float around, spending time at many stations and working on different things, while others will choose to spend the majority of their time working on one project. We welcome this sort of self-directed learning.
 
Each station will have volunteer instructors and assistants to guide you in how to use the tool, and then to support your student as he or she thinks creatively and starts coding. 

A dozen new coding stations in all different programming languages!

WHAT TO BRING

You will need to bring your own laptop. If you have other electronics that you don't mind your child/children using, then please bring those as well - for example, digital camera, flip cameras, tablets, etc. They might just find something interesting to do with them. If you don't have access to a laptop, we will have about 20 laptops ready to borrow on a first come, first served basis.

*Please note that an adult (preferably a parent) must stay with your child during this event. We encourage all parents to stay. This is a collaborative experience and a chance to connect with your child around digital technology. We promise parents will have fun, too.
