Mission Bit offers coding courses which expose high school students from underserved and underrepresented communities to multiple coding languages. We design our classrooms with community and project based 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. Each term students take a field trip to a tech company, receive career and college advising related to the technology field, and showcase their 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 student who attends a San Francisco public school 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 Fall 2017 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 complete the required documents and participate in the scheduled events, such as field trips and Demo Day. More information on documents will be given to students that are admitted.
To be considered for admissions, students are required to take part in an interview. Applicants will receive an invitation to be interviewed after the registration deadline has passed. Interviews will take place Saturday September 9, 2017. Be sure to provide accurate email information to receive an invitation to interview.
Consistent attendance is required and students are not allowed to miss more than 3 classes. This is because the classes offer a ton of information every day and we do not want students falling behind.
During the Fall 2017 term, students will take a trip to SF Bay Area tech company and hear from accomplished guest speakers.
Each term ends with Demo Day, which scheduled for December 6th, 2017 at 5pm located at Unity Technologies on 30 3rd Street. This is a required event for students and families are strongly encouraged to attend. Food will be provided. Please mark your calendars.
The last day of registration of Fall 2017 is Tuesday, September 5, 2017 at 5pm.

Intro Web Programming

The Intro to Web Programming course is specifically designed for students with little to no coding knowledge. Students will learn HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript and some core programming concepts through project based instruction. Throughout the course of the semester, students will build websites and Phaser games. At the halfway point of the semester, the class is broken up into teams, each paired with a volunteer who supports students in the final project phase.
