FLG Code Camp & Clubs

Amanda Kristinat
FLG Code Camp/Club introduces ALL Flagstaff kids to computer programming through a hands-on STEM based learning camp and club environment.
The Greater Flagstaff Chamber launched a city-wide digital initiative called Flagstaff Tech Track. Part of its mission is raising awareness among Flagstaff youth to the language of coding and how its relevance transfers across all disciplines. In the camp, which runs for one week in the afternoons, students learn the basics of coding through an interface that resembles one of a video game thereby building immediate enthusiasm. As camp progresses, they work in groups to design computer games. The kids also listen to community leaders who are involved in tech related fields. This coding initiative aligns with our Chamber’s overall mission to assist in building a highly skilled and employable local workforce for tomorrow, advancing a strong business climate, and serving as catalyst for economic development. We are providing our Flagstaff youth with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills; in other words, every possible advantage in meeting the digital demands of our future workplace.
