Students will work their way through four sessions to build a simple web-based application.

Join us May 10 or 11! Content for the two available dates is similar, but each day is tailored to meet the differing abilities of your students. We want your students to be challenged appropriately so they can have a fun and rewarding day. Please select a date that will provide the best possible experience for your students.
