We’ve been hard at working developing new and exciting camps and curriculum since our inaugural coding for kids summer programs in 2018! For Summer 2019, we’re thrilled to offer new project-based camps at four locations throughout Austin, including:

  • Coding & Programming
  • Robotics & Internet of Things
  • Mobile App Development
  • Game Development
  • Graphic & Web Design

In our quest to make computer science education for kids more accessible than ever before, we are excited to announce that our coding and technology camps are available not only at Launch’s main location in Westlake, but at partner institutions throughout Austin! New locations include Upward Bound Montessori School (Round Rock area), Concordia High School (Pflugerville area), and Headwaters School (Downtown).

We understand getting there is only half the battle, as not all families may have the funds to invest in an educational camp for their children. This is why Launch is offering two merit-based scholarships to celebrate and encourage diversity in STEM fields! The Girls in Tech Scholarship is available for girls ages 7-14, while the Future Leaders Scholarship is open to members of underrepresented minority groups ages 7-14.

This is what Zoha Omar, recipient of The Girls in Tech Scholarship, had to say about her award and time at Launch.

“I was both happy and excited at winning the Girls in Tech scholarship from Launch Code. It gave me a chance to learn how much fun coding can be. I love going to my classes each week.” Omar

Applications are open now, and winners are announced quarterly. Get the details and apply at launchafterschool.com/scholarship/.
