Border Kids Code has been serving the students and school districts of The Rio Grande Valley and is excited to launch their new Club Code challenges that are sure to get your child interested in computer science! “We’ve been giving professional development for teachers in the fundamentals of computer science and have had a ton of fun teaching kids the fundamentals of code at one of our camps but the schools and kids were wanting more. We were teasing them with two day camps and our new Club Code challenges will offer a year-long approach at fostering technology on school campuses. We are really excited for the McAllen Mini Faire and look forward to all the cool stuff our community kids will make,” said co-founder Marcos Silva.
Every child that will participate in the technology challenges at the McAllen Mini Maker Faire must bring a laptop or tablet device. Be sure to grab a spot for your child to participate in the technology challenges by registering them at www.borderkids.us.
