Description

What is Hoist?

Hoist is a technology club for teens interested in coding, design or entrepreneurship. If you’re between the ages of 12- and 19 and have an interest in startups, technology or coding, then come check it out. Don't forget to bring your laptop and charger. If you do not own a laptop, we do have a limited number available for use. HOIST is typically held on the third Saturday of the month (holidays pending).


September Topic: Scratch

Scratch is a web-based program that can be used to program your own interactive stories, games, and animations. The ability to create computer programs using code is an important part of literacy in today’s society. When people learn to code in Scratch, they learn important strategies for solving problems, designing projects, and communicating ideas.

Be sure to join us for a fun filled afternoon of Scratch.

Lunch
Enjoy some pizza with your new friends.

Hack
Build or design something, apply what you just learned – it’s a mini hackathon. Work in a group or on your own to create the next big product or service.
