The ISE Coding Garage Hits the Road

MakerBotWe’re over halfway through the 2018 ISE Coding Garage!  Yesterday we hit the road for a trip to the University of Iowa College of Engineering's Annex, a new extension of the University of Iowa’s Seamans Center for the Engineering Arts and Sciences.  Highlights of the tour included the prototyping studio - taking home nuts and bolts created on MakerBot 3D printers, and the new Engineering Design Studio.  Thanks to professor Jon Kuhl for showing the ISE Coding Garage students where their future may lead.

The 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. Participants have access to the ISE interns and other experienced ISE programmers, to ask questions and get feedback during the process. At the end of the program, 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 joint partnership between ISE and the University of Iowa’s Electrical and Computer Engineering department, 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!
