<Code Prep> powered by Microsoft Techspark in collaboration with Fab Lab El Paso is a program for high school age and above that focuses on a mixed learning model combining MOOC, in-person professional mentorship, and group learning for coding knowledge dissemination and exchange.

For each track, students are responsible for 5-6 hours a week over a 4-month period. Classes will meet twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 8p in order to accommodate students and working professionals.

A group of experienced and qualified instructors will lead the classes. In addition, Fab Lab will coordinate industry professionals, SMEs, and local leadership in technology and entrepreneurship to be speakers and presenters. Our strategy is to seek out working professionals who have careers in relevant and competitive CS fields: Cyber Security, Data Science, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Software Development, Data Analysis, DevOps, and IT. These career paths are pursuable with the MPP certification. The experience and insight into their professional lives will help guide students in our Code Prep School as they contemplate next steps in furthering their CS education. We also hope to connect industry professionals and administrators with a potential talent pool of graduates with market-ready skills in the CS industry, thus creating a positive-feedback cycle of symbiosis for participants of our program.

Students who are accepted into our program will be expected to complete a certain number of volunteer hours with CS-related events such as CS Fairs and Career Nights at schools, Hour of Code community workshops for for K-12 students. We would like to encourage participants to be active in giving back to our community through a service-based model that empowers the next generation.
