Formerly "Elmhurst Coding Camp", 630 Code started in the Summer of 2017 with 25 participants over 3 weeks. Mathnasium of Elmhurst graciously allowed us to use their location and has been an important partner to us from the beginning.
We have now taught over 150 students over 3 summers + 2 winter sessions!
We teach a variety of Computer Science and Robotics topics, but also focus on themes outside of just pure coding, such as creativity, problem-solving, and working as a team — all of which make you a better Computer Scientist!
