One of our favorite programs offered here at theCO is CO:de Catalyst: a partnership we have with Treehouse, a self-paced web platform that we provide to local high schools which teaches students how to build a website, learn to code, build an application or start a business. We've asked a few of the standout students who have participated to share a little about themselves and their experience in coding with us.

What has been your favorite part about participating in Co:de Catalyst this year?
My favorite part about the program this year was learning how to create simple programs using different programming languages.
What about computer coding is exciting for you?
I think coding is exciting because you can do practically anything using code (especially making games). I think it is a good skill to have because there are many jobs that involve using computer coding.
Are you interested in learning more about coding or computer coding science after participating in Co:de Catalyst this year?
I would love to learn more about code!
