Kicking Off Another Summer of the ISE Coding Garage

Tuesday night was the kick off of the 2019 ISE Coding Garage. Nearly 50 students will be spending their summer developing mobile apps.  Along the way, a slew of ISE interns and engineers will help guide them in their creations.  As one student described it, the program is like an extended hackathon.

file2-1The ISE Coding Garage is a summer program for high school students interested in learning more about software engineering and developing mobile apps. Students meet once a week for one hour to enhance their development skills and design their own apps. At the end of the program on August 6th, students present their app idea to friends, family, and a panel of judges for a shot at winning cash for their newly created innovation!

A partnership between ISE, the University of Iowa Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, and the Iowa City Area Development (ICAD) group, allows for the program to be free to all participants. Food each week and cash prizes of $850 are also provided as part of the sponsorship. 

Stay tuned for more updates on this year’s ISE Coding Garage class and their mobile app projects!
