Breakout Mentors students meet weekly with their mentor and learn to code through creating fun projects. The Student Showcase is a chance for them to show off what they have accomplished and be inspired by other kids.
Our showcase in Los Altos featured a dozen kids ages 9 through 14. The kids ranged from just a couple months of programming experience to several years. The technologies ranged from drag-and-drop Scratch to traditional languages like Python to augmented reality. This variety really shows how the mentor is able to customize the approach for each individual student.
Congratulations to all the students who participated, they have accomplished a lot this past school year!
