This winter I will be teaching Arduino to youth as part of Gray Area’s new Teen Creative Code Scholarship program.
The Teen Creative Code Scholarship is a pilot program, produced by Gray Area and the Atlassian Foundation, that offers 8 San Francisco teens access to a series of creative coding classes, class materials and mentorship over a period of 1-2 months.
Selected scholars will be given the opportunity to learn Creative Coding fundamentals from experienced instructors and practitioners at Gray Area’s offices in downtown San Francisco. The series will be broken down into 12 hour intensives taking place after school and will cover software development with HTML5, CSS, Processing, and Arduino. Course topics will include web development, data visualization, generative art, gaming, and interactive media.
We are now accepting applications for the inaugural cohort of 8 Teen Creative Code Scholars. The first cohort will be selected from Gray Area’s home for the past 5 years, the Tenderloin areas of San Francisco.
