It matters more to us that your student can use the technical skills they have learned long after the course is over. To do so not only requires building a strong foundation in class, but also accumulating experience outside and after the class. Hence, we have established Coder Con, Startup Showcase, and Web Central as opportunities for students to continue using the skills they have learned in class.
Coder Con is a competitive event held at the end of the school year for middle through high school students. With events ranging from web design, programming, and business pitching, students get the opportunity to participate and compete with other local students for freelance work for small local businesses. Students work throughout the year to prepare for Coder Con, and at Coder Con students showcase their work to compete.
Startup Showcase is a direct extension of Coder Central's Startup Academy it allows students who have ideas they have started at the Startup Academy to share their work with other students and mentors. At this event, student will be able to recruit for more team members and seek more mentorship for their projects. The objective of this showcase is to be a platform and resource for past Startup Academy students to continue their startups.
Web Central is a web/business consultation service for small businesses that is run by former students of Coder Central. This gives students firsthand experience in freelance work as well as professional experience in negotiating deals. Students will be able to apply the web development, graphics design, business, and python skills they have learned at Coder Central.Get Started
