About Jr. DEEP Coding

On your mark. Get set. CODE!

Jr. DEEP Coding is a crash course that will provide students with the opportunity to master the basics of coding. They will be introduced to various coding languages and explore how to create their own programs, with an emphasis on coding logic, programming functionality, and theory.

Are you ready? Because we are!


Participants may only attend one week of the coding program as the content repeats week after week. Please note that curriculum covered in our Jr. DEEP Coding program is very similar to that covered in Girls' Jr. DEEP Coding. We would encourage you to consider one of our other Jr. DEEP courses this summer.
