We Connect The Dots

  • 4 people are interested
Code-a-thon Students
Be a part of giving students a 3-day immersive experience in website design, collaborative team-building, and entrepreneurship.

Students work in teams to build a conceptual business that supports the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals. As a team the students will be integrating technology and working to develop a solution along with a website that offers a solution to a problem facing society. This program prepares students with 21st century workforce skills while preparing them for an active role as a social entrepreneur.

We Connect The Dots is seeking to recruit 4-5 volunteers to serve as one of the judges on Sunday January 31st from 12 pm to 5 pm. Don’t worry if you don’t consider yourself "technically savvy." We will provide you with a checklist of what to look for and guide you through the process. All we ask of our judges is they convey to the students the value of the work they have done and the sacrifices they have made to participate in this endeavor.

Students learn how to code with HTML5, CSS and JavaScript, while learning how to utilize industry platforms to build websites, and Github to store projects for portfolio development, providing students a unique way to stand out when applying for internships, college applications, and job interviews.
