We equip students in under-resourced schools with the fundamental coding skills and professional experiences that together create access to careers in technology.
ScriptEd equips students with the fundamental coding skills and professional experiences that together create access to careers in technology.
ScriptEd offers courses twice a week throughout the school year in our partner schools. Our courses are taught by software developers on a volunteer basis, ensuring that students not only have exposure to the most up-to-date knowledge available, but also role models and potential mentors in the field. Depending on schools schedules and needs, the class can be held either during the school day or after school.
In addition to coursework, ScriptEd students are exposed to the tech industry through field trips to start-ups and technology companies, engaging with guest speakers in-class and job shadowing opportunities. Each semester culminates in a Hackathon, where students create projects in teams and compete for prizes. They present these projects to their classmates and families, partner firms and community members.
Internships: ScriptEd’s most qualified students can apply for its six-week summer Internship Program. ScriptEd partners with companies around New York City to match students to internship positions. Students are eligible to enroll in the Internship Program after they complete ScriptEd’s Foundations Course with a high rating.
