STEAM:CODERS announced that they are holding a “Mobile App Development” course, at La Salle High School (Pasadena, CA), Saturday mornings, from June 6th — August 15th. STEAM:CODERS teaches underrepresented and disadvantaged students of color science, technology, engineering, art and math, providing them with an early introduction to academic and career opportunities in the STEAM-related fields.
La Salle High School is a co-ed Catholic college preparatory school, in Pasadena, CA. They have made a strong commitment to STEAM and underserved students. They have partnered with STEAM:CODERS to enhance the STEAM skills of students who do not have access to STEAM resources (facilities and instruction). Students will be introduced to computer coding and the basics of computer science. The overall goal is to spur both imagination and innovation. Students will benefit from classroom instruction, online support and and field trips to STEAM organizations. This is a new and exciting experience for the students and STEAM:CODERS is honored to be part of this initiative.
