Scholars were taught the basics of application design and JavaScript coding. Using Code.org curriculum, Scholars completed activities designed to promote critical thinking, good digital citizenship, teamwork, and user informed design. Scholars coded and designed a web based clicker application game.

Scholars set goals for their time in the camp, and the group discussed the importance of goal setting and positive self-talk and self-reinforcement when making, working toward, and achieving their dreams.

All Scholars received a certificate of completion at the end of the camp and enjoyed lunch bought from local businesses.

Thank you to Santander Bank US - Branch, New Jersey Center for Hispanic Policy, Research and Development, and PSEG for your ongoing support that makes Latinos in Tech possible!
