coding will be an essential skill in the future. Will your child be ready?
Just 1 in 10 schools across the country teach Computer Science. Close to 122,000 jobs are created each year that require some kind of programming experience. Yet only 60,000 graduates come out with the necessary experience. Our schools are not adequately preparing our children for the workforce of tomorrow.
Youth Coding Camp fills the gap. We prepare your child (aged 9-17) for the future by equipping them with the necessary programming skills to survive and thrive in the future. We do this by emphasizing the practical over the theory. By attending our camp, your child will be able to write software and have an edge on their peers when applying to high school, college, and eventually joining the workforce.
What we teach
Scratch is a tool created by MIT used to teach programming in a visual and playful way. It is perfect for beginners who have never coded before. We will use it to create interactive scenes and stories that rely on using logic and basic programming concepts.
HTML is the language used to present the content of a web page. We will go over how to put text, images, and other types of content on a page. We will also go over how to position in different layouts. Finally, we will briefly cover the use of off the shelf user interface toolkits such as Twitter Bootstrap to demonstrate how modern web development is performed.
CSS is the language used to stylize web pages. It can be used to change the size, color, font, etc of the content. We will learn the most popular properties and get practice modifying existing CSS themes as well as building our own.
Franklin salazar - studying compUTER sciENCE at st joseph's college (new york)
Manish was the person who really got me hooked into programming and that's pretty much how I decided to become a Computer Science Major, because I love coding.
Manish's methods helped to get better at coding and start my projects from ground zero. During his class I had to write code in a piece of paper, this method gave the students in his class the ability to have a better understanding of what they are learning.

During my first year as a student, I had Manish as a teacher and a
mentor. He was very patient with his students and always made sure whatever topic was being covered, everyone understood. I also had Manish as a volunteer for one of the hackathons I attended. While we were coding, he was friendly and approachable. He was very supportive when we gave our ideas, and gave us confidence before and after our presentation.
I feel very lucky I had Manish as my first programming teacher, and I used all of his advice to get through my Java classes in college.
who we are
Our instructors are college educated and professionally trained software engineers who have studied at universities such as Harvard, UC Berkeley, & Columbia University. They have worked at places including Google, Palantir, and the White House.
