Blast Off! Launch Expands Summer Camps Throughout Austin with Scholarships Available!
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
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
Launch Code After School is an Austin-based STEM education startup founded by a team passionate about providing a coding education to today’s kids so that they’re ready to be tomorrow’s leaders. Classes are available weekdays and Saturdays for ages 7-14 to learn and build in a collaborative, self-paced environment with more intensive project-based camps available over winter and summer break.
