CodeDay Philly

Making students fall in love with code

CodeDay is a national movement empowering high school students to discover the wonders of computer science.

[](/sbwave) Coding, programming, and computer analytics don’t seem like very sexy careers. Having Applications Software Developer etched in the nameplate on your desk? Perhaps even less so. But did you know that developers and programmers are among the highest paid members of the workforce, right out of college?

[](/karmahappy2) According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for jobs in STEM fields are expected to rise as much as 25% in the next 5 years.

[](/sbbored) How do kids and young students, equipped with one-in-a-million aspirations of rock stardom and Hollywood, embrace a profession with great growth rates and quite a bit higher than average income?

This is CodeDay Philly.

[](/scootybelle) For 24 hours we invite students ranging from middle school through college level, of all experience levels, whether you don’t know anything about programming or you’ve been doing it for several years, to just come, build something cool, whether it’s a game or an app, to meet other programmers in the area and network across the country.

Amazing Projects

Low Cost, High Return


We inspire students with no prior interest in coding. After attending an event, 80% of these students are still pursuing coding three months later.

Commitment to Diversity


Nationwide, 43% of our participants are girls, 38% are from Title I schools, and 21% are from a under-represented ethnic group.

Expanding our Reach

[](/sweetiereach-d-r "Let's do this!") CodeDay Philly was so successful that we have started events in New Jersey & DC. I am personally looking into starting even more events in Central PA, Baltimore, Delaware, and other east coast communities.

Help us bring CodeDay to even more cities in 2016!
