Code Camp

Getting Started in Computer Science & Programming

A program designed to introduce the fundamentals of Computer Science, Programming, and more to students ages 6 – 18.

Students Ages 6 - 18

Children will benefit from introductory educational classes related to coding (code.org), robotics, as well as general computer usage. There is a great digital divide for children which is a technical ceiling to their potential growth and success. Children lack access to equipment that fosters their curiosity and abilities. Coding, robotics, and STEM programs challenges the student and inspire a career choice in high paying careers in STEM.

Rehabilitation & Job Readiness for Young Adults

For adults, the lab will focus on educational core computing components such as email, word processing, spreadsheets, online applications for items such as SNAP benefits, food handler’s permits, and more. From the basic “how to” courses, to getting comfortable with information provided via electronic medical records, the COW will quickly become an asset to adult education in each of the neighborhoods visited.

About CodeCamp

Code Camp is a program produced by CodeRGV for the Rio Grande Valley and the McAllen Public Library to expose children and teenagers of the McAllen area and the RGV to computer programming, also known as coding. It will be offered free of charge on a first come first serve basis. All teenagers from ages 11-17 are encouraged to sign up on the Code Camp website at http://codecamprgv.com/register 

In addition to the classes offered, adults who make programming and coding their career choice will show up to the sessions to provide insight into what it is like to be involved in that industry. For example, if the theme of the week is centered around game design, we will invite game developers to attend the session to show off what they do, give some insight into their profession, and show examples of what they create. By doing this we hope to not only take the mystery out of programming, but encourage the youth with real-world examples of how to make a career doing something they love related to programming and design.

Locations CodeCamp is Offered

McAllen Public Library

Beginning in June 2016, Code RGV was contacted to help bring computer science and programming (coding) classes to the McAllen Public Library. With a projected 1,200 students per year in attendance of the camps, this partnership with the McAllen Public Library has helped spark and fan the flames of tech-based learning for thousands of students!  Additional information available and class registration at: http://www.mcallenlibrary.net/events/codecamp.aspx

Mission CEED

As of December 2016, we are excited to be offering a full suite of Code Camp classes at the Mission CEED building! This building, located centrally to the Eastern Rio Grande Valley features 5 classrooms, an auditorium, and co-working spaces that we can take advantage of for lessons of all shapes and sizes! From circuitry to coding, we look forward to seeing you help plant your own seeds of greatness!
