  • Their 2-week Summer Immersion Program (SIP) hosts current 9th-11th graders in live virtual classrooms led by industry-leading companies like Metlife, Bank of America, and Accenture. You’ll learn how to get creative with game design. By the end of the program, you’ll learn the fundamentals of game design, UX, the iterative design process, and more, as you build out a suite of short games using the p5.js library for JavaScript. You can even apply for laptop and hotspot access and grants of up to $300 for financial support!
  • Their Self-Paced Program gives current 9th-12th graders the flexibility to learn to code through independent study and real-world projects. By the end of the program, you’ll earn beginner-level certificates of completion in HTML, CSS, or JavaScript for web development or intermediate-level certificates of completion in Python for Cybersecurity or Data Science.

Both programs introduce you to inspiring industry professionals and unlock lifelong college and career support. For more information on our virtual Summer Programs, check out  or .
