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 an area of computer science. We are planning to refresh the program and offer classes to explore different areas like physical computing, game development, and virtual reality with mentors from each industry. Students will also learn about careers in computer science. Join the waiting list to be notified when the next class is scheduled!

You can also reach out to us with any questions.

Cost: FREE, thanks to our generous sponsors!

All event registrations are subject to the Ticket Policy.

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.
