Gofundme Campaign

Bend Creative Coding and other OSU-Cascades hosted youth-focused groups are in need of a fleet of laptops!  We had previously rented laptops from OSU, but, this service is no longer available to organizations outside the University.  Alas!  We need to fund our own laptops which will be managed by the OSU-Cascades Computer Science director and used for our summer camps and after school programs.  Please help us raise the funds by linking here and sharing.  Thank you!


Way to go, coders! What a summer!

That's a wrap!  July 27 ended an excellent four weeks of coding camps — bringing over 90 students, an all-girls camp, a robot-focused camp and a ton of fun learning how to code. A huge THANKS to all who turned out.  If you have any comments or questions about the coding camps or suggestions on how we can make the Fall/Winter sessions better, please email us at bendcreativecoding@gmail.com.

A special thanks to the many individuals and organizations that helped make this first year a success: Yong Bakos (OSU-C Computer Science), Florentina Ilie, Whitney Swander and Central Oregon STEM HUB, Steve Tague Photography, Technology Association of Oregon, OSU-Cascades, Allan&Ann Bruckner, Rotary Club of Bend, Michael Steffano and countless others. Thank you ALL for your support.

Stay tuned and expect to hear from us again soon about future sessions or other BCC news!
