CodeSpire offers after-school and weekend computer coding courses, as well as full-day computer coding summer camps.
It is projected that by the year 2022, there will be more than 1.7 million developer and programmer-specific job openings in the United States. Demand for developers and programmers is increasing — a shortage that is explained, in part, by a lack of computer language literacy programs in K-12 public schools. CodeSpire helps fill the gap by providing hands-on exploration and learning.
As a parent, you know that young people are voracious consumers of digital media… but with CodeSpire, kids move from consuming to creating.
CodeSpire’s summer camps enable students to:
- Develop skills in systematic reasoning and computational thinking.
- Learn coding syntax, the “grammatical rules” of coding, and various types of algorithms as a precursor to developing their own software solutions.
- Develop 21st Century skills including planning, creative problem-solving, and collaboration.
- Create their own projects, games, and applications.
CodeSpire’s camps, designed for Elementary through Middle-school students, help participants build a maker mindset, plus knowledge and skills that can begin their journey on the path to college and career success. Select workshops available for high school students upon request.
During CodeSpire camps, you’ll learn computational thinking and programming concepts, then apply these new skills to develop and animate game characters, or program a robot, or even develop your own personal app.
CodeSpire encourages creativity, innovation, and collaboration with other kids — so you’ll have a really fun summer camp experience that will give you valuable tech knowledge and hands-on experience. Whether you’re looking to build some coding skills or to begin your journey toward a career in computers and programming, CodeSpire can help you reach your goals.
