Tennessee Code Academy and WTCI are hosting a computer programming camp in Chattanooga, April 14-18, at WTCI-TV studios. The weeklong day camp will teach young people the basics of computer programming, including gaming, design fundamentals and web application.
Students will learn from mentors, programmers and various industry experts throughout the week. The camp is open to those ages 12-18 and 24 slots are available for each camp.
“This is a unique opportunity for the youth in Tennessee to be exposed to the skill set to launch them into a modern-day economy,” said Sammy Lowdermilk, program director for TN Code Academy. “In the next 10 years there will be a million more computer science jobs than graduates, and we want to do our small part to lessen that gap.”
The camp is co-sponsored by Launch Tennessee, Waypaver, and WTCI. The cost of the camp is $300. The application deadline is April 10. Students may apply at www.tncodeacademy.com/code-camp/
