Free "Learn To Code" Workshops @ Microsoft Prudential

Grades 6-8 Sponsored by CodeCampKidz

Tuesdays from 3:30 - 5:00pm

The Microsoft Store - Prudential

Would you like to introduce your children to real coding in a fun and achievable way?

CodeCampKidz cordially invites them to The Microsoft Store for 2 free "Learn To Code" workshops. They will work through projects writing real HTML, CSS & Javascript code progressing from the basics to more advanced topics, building skill and self-confidence along the way. We will guide them through the process step by step to make sure they succeed. Each time they complete a project they will have earned new “coding tools” and will be provided with a work area to create their own personalized designs. They can use them for school, personal or community projects and publish them for others to see. We will assist them at every step with personal mentoring, debugging and code reviews. No experience is required.
