Hour of Code Workshops
- The Hour of Code workshops, taught using interfaces designed by Code.org and its partners, are designed for coders who have completed any of our #HelloWorld programs. The workshops will focus on algorithmic thinking and different coding skills, including different types of loops, methods, if-else statements, and data types. After completing this workshop, students are well-equipped to start one of our full-year workshops and pursue coding on their own through Teens Transforming Technology's Tech@Home Resource page.
- Past Sessions:
- January 21st, 2017 - Herndon Fortnightly Library, 2:00-3:30 PM
- April 13th, 2017 - Georgia Connections Academy (online)
- The #HelloWorld single-day workshops are aimed at a K-6th grade audience and help expose students to the fundamentals of programming and algorithmic thinking. Workshop content is taught in MIT AppInventor or on the Code.org interface for younger grades and prepares students for the more in-depth Hour of Code workshops later on. Students are encouraged to collaborate in problem solving so they can expand their knowledge of coding even after the workshop.
- Past Sessions:
- July 16th, 2016: 1:00-4:00 PM at Herndon Fortnightly Library - 3, 2, 1, App That!

Fundamentals of Web Development
- After completing instruction in the three curriculum areas, students work on larger products (similar to final projects) for nonprofits, which allows them to directly apply what they've learned in the course to a final product they can call their own. By the end of the school year, students will be well on their way to becoming certified full-stack web developers!
