As part of our initial response to this year’s unprecedented crisis we offered free pop-up online coding classes to the general public. During the months of March and April 2020, K-12 students who were unable to attend school and adults who were unable to work during this challenging time were still able to enrich themselves and build new skills.

The pop-ups were streamed live on Facebook and are now available on-demand here. While these classes do not serve as a replacement for hands-on instruction, it’s a first step toward rebuilding and re-skilling our community so that we are all stronger on the other side.
