Host your own jam

We're excited to launch our Jam in a Box kits for schools and afterschool programs. Each box includes everything you need for an engaging and impactful family engagement event around coding.


Flexible Design

Jams are flexible in their design and can be created for students K-12, at a variety of skill levels and with a variety of coding tracks (exploration of programming languages, cyber security, computationaal thinking, digital citizenship, game design, etc.).

This video, from a community-wide Jam held in Austin, TX, captures the essence of how these events inspire parents, students and community volunteers.
