Build your own app this summer!

Coding Garage 2016The ISE Coding Garage is a FREE summer program for high school students interested in learning more about software engineering and developing their own apps. The Coding Garage is sponsored by ISE and the University of Iowa’s, protostudios.

Students meet once a week for one hour to enhance their development skills and design their own apps. Participants will have access to the ISE interns and other experienced ISE programmers, to ask questions and get feedback during the process. Food and drinks are also provided to the students during each session.

At the end of the program, students will present their app idea to friends, family, and a panel of judges for a shot at winning cash for their newly created innovation!
