Code++

We are excited to offer a code camp for students in grades 8-12!

Code++ is a one day event to teach 8th-12th grade students about programming. The beginner group will learn HTML and CSS to build their own website. Advanced students will learn how to incorporate Javascript into a page. Information about careers in computer science will also be presented.

Information

  • Coming February 2022 from 9 am – 3 pm.  Exact date TBA.
  • Cost: $50 (with registration covered by our generous sponors)

This event exceeded our expectations and continues to grow! Since 2018, our  Code++ instructors have taught over 30 middle school & high school students in our 1 day coding bootcamp! With the great success of Code ++, we’ve decided to support a variety of programs state-wide aimed at encouraging teens to experience and consider careers in computer science.

Details of our next Code++ and registration will begin in August 2021.  Registration is subject to the NewBoCo Event & Ticket Cancellation Policy.

GirlsCode++

While Computer Science is one of the fastest-growing majors today, women make up only 18% of graduates. We can change this and have fun at the same time.
In February 2016, we held the first girls-only code camp in Iowa. The event exceeded our expectations – more than 50 middle and high school girls attended! We’ve since decided to support a variety of programs state-wide aimed at encouraging girls to experience and consider careers in computer science.
