Event description
In this webinar, we will cover what the YCL is, the impact it can have on your school, and how your school can get involved.

About this event

There is a lack of STEM education offered in secondary education and the Youth Coding League brings the solution with a fun and engaging twist. The program is project-based and is structured the same way as any other competitive sport. Kids not only learn to code, but they learn critical thinking, problem-solving, and resiliency.

The YCL has introduced computer programming to over 1,200 students in over 50 schools and 5 states across the country.

This webinar will cover:

  • How the YCL addresses the need for STEM programming
  • What the program is and how it works
  • How any teacher can become a coach
  • And how your school can get enrolled
