Greetings Westview Family! Please see below for important campus information.

Youth Code Jam:

Youth Code Jam is excited to bring a family coding event to Austin. The event is open to all K-12 students and their parents/guardian. No previous coding experience is required.

Students are invited to bring a parent/guardian and explore some of the coolest coding and CS activities available, from programmable cars to CS languages to virtual reality. We ask that families to bring their own laptops, but if students don’t have a laptop available from home, we do have ones to borrow on a first come, first served basis. There will be coding for every age and every level (even beginners!).

And best of all, Youth Code Jam instills an excitement for creative computing in both students AND parents that can continue to grow. Youth Code Jam wants to ensure this unique opportunity is accessible to all students.

More information about Youth Code Jam is HERE. Space is limited, so ensure your place by registering soon using the Sign up to attend link.
