B4C teaches students good foundational software engineering practices through building out their website using WordPress.
Through our B4C program, students will be presented with engaging ideas for projects that will challenge and teach them a variety of valuable, web-based skills. Students will become active rather than passive users of technology and start learning skills that may one day help them to secure a job in our increasingly technology-driven world. Even if students do not go on to code for a living, a basic understanding of programming concepts improves problem-solving and thinking skills which are both transferable and empowering.
