Calling all teens who aren’t already tech geniuses: the Flatiron School today announced it’s launching a coding conservatory for high school students. Sounds #fancy.
This isn’t the first time the Flatiron School has worked with some younger clientele. Last summer, they teamed up with Skillcrush to offer a two-week intensive course to high schoolers.
“The longterm goal will be to create a more sustainable after school program so that rather than kids doing ballet or karate or learning violin we can add coding to that mix,” Flatiron School president Adam Enbar told Betabeat at the time. “We want to create a real ongoing program to help kids learn how to code.”
Enrollment for Flatiron After School is open today. Students can choose between meeting once a week for four hours at a time, or twice a week for two hours at a time, according to the release.
