KidsCanCode Programming Camps
June 13-24 (Sherman Oaks)
August 1-5 (Pasadena)
Learn to code this summer! Learning to program is empowering—it's about changing your relationship with the technology around you from passive consumer to active creator. It's about learning how to think critically and solve problems. It's especially important to encourage girls to take command of technology: women are dramatically underrepresented in today's hi-tech industries. We can solve this by starting early, giving girls the tools to develop a lifelong passion for creating tomorrow's technology. For 2016, KidsCanCode is offering a variety of week-long day camp programs for all ages and levels of experience. Girl Scout students receive 20% off tuition! Visit http://kidscancode.org/summer for details or call 818-794-0522.
