Meet a few members of the Mission Bit Team!
Christina is new to the MB team, but has deep roots to the city of San Francisco and the Mission District. She’s a graduate of public schools, advocate for youth and a collector of stones. You can ask more about that or other questions about Mission Bit at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ryan is a Mission Bit alumni turned instructor and a fan-favorite for many of our students. Ryan recently graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a degree in Computer Science with a focus of Game Design. Outside of work and just being awesome, Ryan enjoys continuing his love for coding.
Want to meet all the instructors? Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook. We’ll be sharing more about the team and all the students that are taking this journey with us this semester.
On Saturday, September 15, Mission Bit staff, instructors, students and their families kicked off the start of the semester by attending the Fall Family Orientation held at City College of San Francisco’s Mission Campus.
At the orientation, students and their families were able to learn more about the growing tech divide in the Bay Area and what Mission Bit hopes to accomplish by bringing diversity and inclusion to their intro to computer science classes. Currently, 100,000 high school students across the Bay Area have no access to coding education. Mission Bit students not only learn game design, web design, and mobile app development, they gain skills in leadership, teamwork, and problem solving.
Students in attendance on Saturday went around the room and answered what Mission Bit’s core values meant to them, which are community, social justice, accountability, smart risk, and love. Students were able to meet and greet with their Fall instructors and ask general questions about the upcoming semester.
We wish the best of luck to our Fall students!
