TechieForLife (TFL) is offering its first ever Summer Coding Intensive from June 11 and July 9th, 2018. Neurodiverse students who have an interest in learning computer coding can apply for the summer intensive so they can see if a career in tech might be a good fit for them. The focus will be for students to build a technology foundation in coding, hardware or specific interests.
But it doesn't end there because they will also have the opportunity to participate in:
- Life skill classes
- Fun activities
- Adventure trips
- Leadership opportunities
Students will be developing their social skills while having the opportunity to earn certificates in tech. Any student going into their senior year of high school and older may apply. Beginner and intermediate coders or software programmers may take part in four to up to ten week stays this summer.
