What We Do
"We all strive to understand and show our children how to responsibly fit technology into every day life. How do we pull our kids away from screens and also somehow prepare them to compete in a workforce that increasingly demands technology competence? We believe the answer is simple: encourage our kids to be makers. Everyone involved with Bits and Bytes is passionately working toward creating a learning community where local, school-aged students can collaborate and explore a variety of means to express creative ideas using engineering and technology. Though we began with just a few afterschool programs that introduce kids to coding, the enthusiasm and success we experienced inspired us to expand our learning opportunities. We are working hard to introduce weekend and family-night workshops that include a range of topics from "how things work" to "computer animation" to "designing your first app." We're also forging exciting partnerships with local development firms who share our mission and want to empower the next generation of engineers."
