On August 5th, 2015, Learn43 (//learn43.me) will launch it’s HackNight! after-school ‘Learn to Code’ program for Fall 2015. HackNight! students learn important skills in Design and Computer Science on the road to creating awesome online games and other web creations.

HackNight! presents a focus on Game and Web design which differs from other coding camps.

Each HackNight! session follows one of several Learning Tracks, including ‘How to Create an Adventure Game’, ‘Web Design’, ‘Game Design with Crafty.js’, and others. The Learning Tracks range in difficulty from basic block-based programming to writing real JavaScript.

Students can win Achievements for learning design techniques. Achievements are awarded in the form of Mozilla Open Badges which can be shared to create a digital portfolio of online work.

All of the HackNight! Learning Tracks are taught by Memphis-area Design or Computer Science professionals.

Each HackNight! session costs $15. Students can also join HackNight! by becoming Genius member for $25 / month. Genius members have 24/7 access to video tutorials, Achievement opportunities, and all Learning Tracks.

HackNight! meets every 1st and 3rd Wednesday at 4:30 – 6:30 pm with students ages 7 – 17 at CoWork Memphis. For more information, see the Learn43 website at learn43.me. Also, checkout Learn43 on Instagram and Vine.

Learn43 believes that HackNight! brings students closer to Design, Computer Science, and their dreams.
