Michigan City Area Schools and the Economic Development Corporation of Michigan City, in conjunction with a number of community partners, will host a second annual city-wide "Week of Code" for students and community members, May 4-11. Parents, students, teachers and community members are invited to attend a Week of Code kickoff celebration during the Michigan City Mainstreet Association's First Friday event (May 4) and a "Maker Fest" on Saturday, May 5 at Michigan City High School. Students at all MCAS schools will take part in age-appropriate coding activities throughout the week.
What's "coding?" At the most basic level, code is a set of written instructions a human gives a machine, telling it what to do. Computer coding makes it possible to create software, websites, apps, and games... but almost anything that runs on electricity uses code. The demand for coding skills in the workplace has increased as technology becomes integrated into more jobs.
