Each year, Code2College participants develop technical capstone over the course of 6-8 months during twice-weekly after-school sessions. At our annual Demo Day event, student teams present their web applications to a panel of judges from the Austin Tech ecosystem (e.g. CTO of RetailMeNot, EVP, Engineering of OJO Labs). 15-20 teams will each have 2-3 minutes to present their technical solutions to specific civics problem statements. At the close of the event, the winning team(s) will win college scholarships from Code2College partner companies.
Code2College provides access and opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) fields to students from underrepresented backgrounds in tech: girls, students of color and from low-income backgrounds. By equipping these students with both technical and professional skills, we endeavor to prepare them for a variety of in-demand, high-paying technical careers.
