Update from the Teens Transforming Technology team: Due to COVID-19 and the CDC's recommendations to practice social distancing, we are suspending all in-person workshops until further notice. These workshops will be virtualized and more details will be shared shortly, as well as new programs to support continuity of computer science education during this time. If you have any questions or need to request a laptop for use at home, please fill out our contact form.
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 loops, methods, if-else statements, and data types. After completing this workshop, students are well-equipped to start one of our full-year workshops.
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.
