Attend a #Wyncamp Open House!
June 4, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
#Wyncamp is a six-week experience through which high school students with little to no experience will learn how to master The Art of Code. In the spirit of Wyncode’s professional adult boot camps, Wyncamp is led by a teacher with a passion for 21st-century education. Come to our open house to meet the teacher and the whole Wynfam! Wyncampers will learn everything they need to create functional web applications. They will walk away with an impressive resume and some of the most important knowledge and skills for today’s job market. Why Coding? As of March 2016, Florida has nearly 25000 open computing jobs, but only 2000 computer science graduates. While some high schools in Florida do offer computer science, the Florida Department of Education has not officially adopted any computer science standards. This means that the computer science education a high school student in Florida receives is unregulated and can be irrelevant and outdated when compared to current market trends. We’ve worked hard to develop a curriculum that puts a student on the pathway to these careers while also empowering students pursuing other disciplines to become better able to compete in a challenging job market. Every career, every industry, is rapidly being encroached on by tech, and those without this knowledge will find their skill sets outdated. A depressingly small amount of high schools offer computer science curriculum, but the percentage of jobs that require technical acumen continues to increase every year. Will you be ready to fill these roles?
