Introducing Codingville at THRIVE!

Thrive is excited to introduce a new program, Codingville, an easy and engaging way for youth to learn coding concepts/digital skills in an online game-based learning environment with the support of Thrive facilitators. This program will run for 8-weeks of 3-hour sessions each Thursday beginning on February 6th, 2020.

Youth will be trained through Codingville and receive access to a series of game-based, themed journeys, approximately 21 hours, that support learning the fundamentals of coding. Youth will then have the opportunity at the end of the journeys to apply their learnings to a project, approximately 3 hours, where they will build a game that highlights core concepts.
