Hello World comprises of software engineers from companies like Amazon, Apple, and IBM, who have joined forces to create a fun, rigorous, project-based learning environment for 2nd-12th grade students, centered on mastering programming concepts in cutting edge technology fields.
Sessions take place at innovative tech hubs in downtown Austin, including Capital Factory, Galvanize, and Hack Reactor. The full 45-hour experience is divided between direct instruction, team work and group challenges, structured independent work, creativity time, community and culture building, and career readiness, including a field experience to a tech company. We are open to ALL levels, including beginners, and will differentiate based on previous exposure to engineering concepts. We strongly encourage girls to join the program!
