HUSTON-TILLOTSON UNIVERSITY KICKS-OFF BEING NAMED A NEW HBCU C2 CODING CENTER BY HOSTING THE

CAIT2 CODING ACADEMY:  COMMUNITY APP SHOWCASE!!!

Huston-Tillotson’s CAIT2 Coding Academy is a collaborative project supported by the Apple Community Education Initiative. The goal of the initiative is to help prepare faculty to bring coding, creativity and community connected learning experiences to Huston-Tillotson University. Through training academies, selected educators will receive support to guide a small student-group to develop and implement a plan to integrate coding into their programs using Everyone Can Create and Everyone Can Code, and build curriculum based on iOS Intro to App Development and iOS App development with SWIFT.  Academy started July 2020 and will conclude April 2021.

Every year we challenge students to create and submit their original app prototype for a chance to win scholarships. Each challenge is specific to helping solve a real-world issue.
