My name is Andrew; I am a student at Yale University, and one of the organizers of YHack. YHack is an organization that runs Yale’s annual hackathon of the same name, which brings students from all over the country for 36 hours of collaborative, freeform programming work. On behalf of the YHack organization, I would like to invite your students to participate in CodeBoola! This event is Yale’s high school computer science boot camp, where we will teach students about basic computer science concepts and how to code. The event will be held on Yale’s campus on April 15th and is absolutely free to all students, lunch included!
The day will consist of various hands-on workshops, where students will have the opportunity to apply what they learn, as well as engaging talks in various fields of computer science. Both will be taught by Yale students, and each will teach the participant a different skill in the realm of programming and computer science. The event will be held at the Watson Center (60 Sachem Street) on April 15th from 9am to 4:30pm.
If you could pass this message along to your students, or to the respective teacher or department that would manage this, we would appreciate it so much; and of course, if you have any questions, feel free to ask or contact me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org)! Unfortunately, we can only accommodate roughly 200 students, so signups will be on a first-come first-serve basis.
Further information and student registration is currently live on codeboola.yhack.org! Please tell any interested students to sign up there.
Thank you very much for your time and hope to see your students here on the 15th!
