I love to hear about children who are interested in computer science and coding. It is not everyday that you hear about it or even at all. In Baltimore there is a specific group that is helping this along. Code In Schools is a non profit that provides training to students who want to learn coding. Their mission is simply to bring quality programming classes to under-served and under-represented youth of Baltimore City.
While I am an avid volunteer, I look forward to volunteering especially when it is related to the technology field. Growing up in Baltimore City, I was not exposed to programming at an early age and wish I could have been. My first real experience with computer science was in my high school computer science class. From that point on I knew what I wanted to do as a career path. So to see so many children coding is heart-warming to say the least.
Coming up, I will be volunteering for their Game Jam, it’s an event in which Volunteers and students get together and create a game using Unity or Kodu game development software. The event will be Oct 3 and last form 8-6pm with an awards reception at 7pm. This should be an all around fun time for both volunteers as well as students.
