Information Systems Association Hosts Coding Camp for Detroit School

5/30/2018

On May 26, the Information Systems Association (ISA) welcomed eleven students and two faculty members from Van Buren Middle School to the University of Michigan-Dearborn to learn about coding.

Middle school students received a full day of training, including a one-on-one learning experience from eight undergraduate and graduate College of Business ISA volunteers. Students participated in a “dream job” activity where they discussed future career aspirations with ISA volunteers, who shared how information systems and coding applications could help them achieve these goals.

In addition, students were introduced to code.org, a free online training program that focuses on computer science and computer programming. At the end of the eight-hour class, each student received a certificate from the University of Michigan-Dearborn congratulating them on their success in coding. 

The ISM Association was proud to make this experience 100% free and provided the transportation, snacks, and lunch for the students.
