Students work at their own pace, advance through learning modules, and develop real-life projects using their new Tech skills.
Dev Catalyst can be facilitated as an afterschool program, club, elective, or camp by teachers that are not Computer Science credentialed but willing to learn the platform and Dev Catalyst is a great way for schools and districts to begin offering Computer Science opportunities in schools without current Computer Science programs and in rural or understaffed schools.

How does it work?
"Dev Catalyst is rooted in developing student coders who are marketable in today’s workforce"
There are four tiers of involvement: Novice Web Dev, Advanced Web Dev, Data Dev, and Student Dev Teams.
Students in Novice and Advanced Web Dev develop community projects and seek out local businesses or nonprofit organizations to serve as their “client” for a website project to add to their online portfolios. Through this collaboration between client and student, students further develop their professional and coding skills.
Our Data Dev track focuses on dev in SQL and PHP to manipulate and transform data and metrics to create a database driven site with their team. Our Student Dev Teams are selected to work on short term advanced projects where they get input from tech industry professionals."
