Coding and Game Design for Kids & Teens

The Y is ready to create the next generation of technology innovators! The youth and teen computer science program is a STEM program using gamified education as a platform to teach technical based skills – coding, programming, modeling and design. The new computer coding program at the YMCA can also serve as launching pad for more advanced participants to receive collegiate scholarships.

Through gameplay and academics, the program instructor will teach social and team building skills to kids who might not have the opportunity or willingness to participate in traditional sports.
