Youth Code Jam

September 26, 2015

The Code Jam is a semi-unstructured, collaborative, creativity-inspiring, bring-your-own-laptop experience for youth.

In a nutshell…

  • Local events, “hack jams” or “code jams” make game design, webmaking and digital literacy easy, social and fun.
  • We’ll be using tools that help make it easy for youth to explore, remix and redesign the web.
  • Understanding how to design games and tinker with code is a skill that’s in demand and makes youth more employable.
  • Taking part in a code jam helps teens and tweens develop learning competencies, including critical thinking and interpersonal skills.
  • All of the tools and curricular content are designed to be peer-learning experiences that are constructed and evolved by community input and contribution.
