We are excited to partner again with Success in Education and a consortium of industry, government, and education leaders to launch version 2.0 of Idaho Codes, an online computer science course with a new coding camp component to teach junior high and high school students statewide how to build websites and develop apps.
On-campus camp sites will be housed at the state’s four community colleges — College of Eastern Idaho, College of Southern Idaho, College of Western Idaho, and North Idaho College — and a couple other locations. Camp capacity is limited with some locations only having 30 seats available, so register quickly.
Students will dive into 120 hours of professional-grade curriculum and have access to instructional videos 24/7, online mentor support, and there are a variety of benchmarks, including quizzes, projects, and a final exam. Students do not need any prior coding experience to enter the program and will have the potential to earn high school and/or college credit.
Our industry partners are excited to give students the opportunity to learn the foundational skills that are used in their businesses daily. Thanks to donations from St. Luke’s Health System, J. R. Simplot Foundation, Idaho Central Credit Union, Micron Foundation, and in partnership with the STEM Action Center, students who register will get their fees waived.
Don’t miss out on this great opportunity. Registrations are filling up, so hurry and register now at www.idahocodes.org.
