theCoderSchool + Congressional App Challenge

Ready for a challenge? theCoderSchool and the Congressional App Challenge have partnered for years to get more kids coding, with a cool prize at the end to boot! Thousands of students around the country participate in this district level coding contest held each year, with submissions due in November. Each participating U.S Congressional District has its own set of winners, all of whom are invited to our nation's capitol in Spring to participate in House of Code - a chance to show off your code and meet some U.S. Congress men and women to boot! Students in middle or high school are eligible to participate, found out more on their website or scroll down to check out our past winners!

What is theCoderSchool? We are an after-school drop-off (and virtual) program for kids learning to code - a coding school! There's after-school kung fu. There's after-school music lessons, sports, art, tutoring, Chinese, you name it, it's out there. But coding classes for kids? Founded in 2013, we're the first of many, and the largest in Silicon Valley with more locations on the way around the country. The future will be ever more dependent on technology so let's get our young generation ready. Learn to Code, Change the World®.
