Welcome to #TechTeenTuesday, a series of blog posts recognizing teen coders and young people who began as teen coders. With these posts, we want to highlight the amazing things teen coders are capable of, and to show high school students that they are also just as capable of learning how to code, and to excel at it. #TechTeenTuesday is on hiatus until the 2016 Congressional App Challenge begins in July.
If you’d like to be featured on #TechTeenTuesday, please feel free to shoot us an email and fill out the Q&A form, here. If you have someone you’d like to nominate, please feel free to share this information with them.
