BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – weVENTURE’s Women’s Business Center (WBC), the Central Florida-based organization launched at Florida Institute of Technology and focused on accelerating sustainable business growth for entrepreneurs, has partnered with CodeCraft Works to offer a two-day Entrepreneurial Code Camp for teens ages 14-18.
The camp takes place during spring break on April 11 and 12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at CodeCraft’s facility in Eau Gallie Arts District.
This hands-on spring break program teaches students how to transform their talents into a career and, one-day, perhaps a profitable business.
weVENTURE’s WBC and CodeCraft Works staff will work with students to learn how to develop an entrepreneurial idea from a coding and marketing prospective.
“We are proud to partner with CodeCraft Works for this unique program geared especially toward young entrepreneurs!” said weVENTURE Executive Director Erica Lemp.
“Parents are always looking for fun learning experiences for their teens and this is a great opportunity that allows them to explore how their talents can shape their career choice in the future.”
weVENTURE, with Central Florida locations in Melbourne and Rockledge, is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
“It’s an honor to mentor tomorrow’s innovators in partnership with weVENTURE,” said Shannon Landin of Codecraft Works.
“Cultivating an early understanding of computer science for all kinds of problem-solving is critical to improving daily lives, economies, and our national security, which all depend on having a strong and skilled STEM workforce.”
Entrepreneurial Code Camp includes lunch and the cost is $120 per teen. Sponsors include Rockwell Collins and Florida Institute of Technology Nathan M. Bisk College of Business.
