Summer Programs 2020


This 4 week program introduces students with no technical background to advanced interface design and programming concepts for creating dynamic internet applications for both practical and expressive ends. Students will be challenged to not only conceptualize but execute culturally-relevant web-based applications using professional tools to create a foundational understanding of technology.

Additionally, this course isn’t all about learning to design and program. We’ll also explore, comment on, critique, or celebrate the impact of tech via the lens of justice, ethics, and community. We’ll visit tech companies, network with professionals, and build a career toolkit specifically designed to launch students into a variety of roles in tech.

Come explore the tech industry with us!
