Great Seattle Times article, "Code-writing clicks as kids get creative", about App Day!
Students attending high school or middle school throughout the Puget Sound region were invited to get a taste of computer science and basic programming at Puget Sound App Day 2014, on Friday, May 23 at Rainier Beach High School. Everyone was welcome to attend regardless of prior computer science knowledge or experience.
Sponsored by Seattle Public Schools’ Career and Technical Education, App Day is a programming event where students learn to create apps and games on their own devices – Windows phones, Androids, iPads, laptops or whatever they have brought with them. Rainier Beach High School computer science instructors, University of Washington computer science students, and engineers from the UW and Microsoft provide technical support for the participants’ efforts.
The event is designed to be both educational and fun, with pizza, a DJ, dance competitions and raffle giveaways included. The day ends with student demos, during which participants are invited to get up on stage and show off their new apps.
The inaugural 2013 App Day event drew more than 500 students from 17 area schools. This year's App Day included over 900 participants.
The 13th Year Promise Scholarship program provides all graduating seniors from Cleveland, Chief Sealth, International, and Rainier Beach High Schools with one year of FREE tuition at South Seattle Community College as well as support services to assist students during their transition from high school to college.
The free tuition is achieved through scholarships and financial aid. Students who are eligible to apply for financial aid are supported in completing the financial aid process as costs associated to college include more than just tuition but also textbooks, supplies, course fees, transportation, and living expenses.
In order to help students make the transition from high school to college, 13th Year offers free support services through their Readiness Academy workshops and 13th Year Bridge Program. These services help students enroll in college and prepare them for college life, including learning about college resources and meeting key staff and faculty at the college.
Students are eligible upon completion of program requirements and high school graduation. Please visit www.southseattle.edu/13th-year for specific program requirements.
