“Code Guilford” is a Community Coding Workforce Initiative that addresses the growing need to expose our workforce to technology-based careers. This pilot initiative provides a unique educational opportunity for cohorts of underrepresented students attending targeted Title I schools, as well as out-of-school youth and adults to gain exposure into the exciting world of computer science through a fun, hands-on and interactive summer camp. Grouped by age/grade, campers spend four days pushing the boundaries of their imaginations learning app development in structured modules. Participants learn the basics of coding and app design, while exploring opportunities in technology careers.
Using the Everyone Can Code curriculum developed by Apple, participants will learn how to code in Swift, while learning methods and outcomes suitable for their age groups. There are 25 slots per age group and will be awarded on a first come first serve basis.
