Code Shop: 2501 – CS and App Development Competitions

Code Shop: 2501 is our attempt to create a time, place and environment where students can work on projects and competitions that may not fit with any of their class-specific work.  You might be working individually, in pairs or in teams on App Development contests, Programming competitions, Science Fair projects or business ideas;  we’re hoping that Code Shop: 2501 can help connect students with resources and support for whatever projects they’re working on.

We’ll be meeting in 124 after school today (Thursday 9/22) to talk about some of the upcoming  competitions and to brainstorm how this student-led,  teacher-supported effort can move forward.

Each year, there are several interesting CS and App Development competitions that take place throughout the year, and several competitions are already under way.
