Mission Bit provides computer science courses that expose high school students from underserved and underrepresented communities to multiple coding languages. We design our classrooms with project based, small group, learning in mind. Fall and Spring courses run for 13 weeks, 4 hours a week. During the summer, we run intensive introductory and advanced courses that last 6 weeks, respectively. In addition to our classes, we offer students a field trip to a Bay Area tech company, career and college advising related to the technology field, and an opportunity to showcase their group projects to a large community of supporters during our Demo Day event at the end of the term.
There are no GPA requirements and any San Francisco public or charter school student is encouraged to apply. Given the lack of diversity in the tech industry and our focus on equity, we accept applications from students of color and girls who attend private schools in San Francisco, as well.
For Spring 2018 Courses:
Mission Bit has a selective admissions process. We seek to create a strong learning community with committed young people who bring a variety of perspectives to the classroom. For students that aren't enrolled, we will add them to our waitlist. We highly encourage all interested students to apply.
Students that enroll in Mission Bit courses will earn a $300 stipend. To receive a stipend students must complete required documents and maintain consistent attendance with no more than three absences. More information on documents will be given to students that are admitted.
To be considered for admissions, students are required to take part in a group interview. Applicants will receive an invitation to be interviewed after the registration deadline has passed. Interviews will take place Saturday January 20, 2018. Please provide accurate email information to receive your invitation.
Each term ends with Demo Day, which is a required event for students. Friends and family are strongly encouraged to attend; please mark your calendar for Wednesday, May 9, 2018.
Registration Deadline is Tuesday, January 12, 2018 at 5pm.
