Tech Program hosts 24-hour coding event in partnership with CodeDay.org
CodeDay Auburn challenges high school students to create fun-filled websites, apps and games in just 24 hours.
On May 23 - 24, the Technology Program at Green River College, in partnership with StudentRND and Codeday.org, hosted CodeDay Auburn, a fun-filled 24-hour coding event for high school students.
The event drew nearly 60 high school students to Green River's main campus for a fast-paced, all-night coding frenzy that allowed participants to pitch project ideas, then form teams to create cool apps and games.
Students enjoyed unlimited pizza and soda, and at the event's conclusion, prizes were awarded by a panel of judges to teams who came up with the most creative websites, apps, and games.
CodeDay Auburn also provided the Green River College Technology Program with a valuable opportunity to promote its Bachelor of Applied Science degree program in Software Development to area students.
Similar CodeDay events took place over the weekend in 27 other cities including Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Nashville, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, and New York, giving CodeDay Auburn a truly national feel.
A special thanks also goes to Green River faculty and staff, and to Technology Program industry partners, who volunteered their time to chaperon and supervise the event.
