How a coworking space helped 300 kids learn JavaScript
Limited Capacity seats available

Through our 501(c)(3) foundation, we have introduced over 300 local public school kids to JavaScript app development.

In partnership with the CodeBeetle School of Technology and Boomtown startup Bitsbox, the program was specifically designed by educators to mesh with current school curriculum to reinforce critical thinking and problem-solving in addition to teaching soft skills that are so critical to success in the workplace.

This is addressing a deficiency in computer science curriculum in schools, is a great way to give back to the community, and the exposure has driven membership for our coworking space, EVO3 Workspace.

Half Baked dot com: Entrepreneurial Improv Theatre!
Sushi Monorail. Unicorn Box. Life Pivot. What do these startups have in common? They're totally made up! Why should our fictional panel of VCs invest in them? That's where you come in!

Form a team, turn two random words into a company name, and pitch a fictional startup to a panel of pretend investors!

Half Baked dot com is everything that's wrong (and oh so right) about the startup world all rolled into one highly participatory, chaotic, and consistently hilarious experience. Guaranteed fun for all!
