Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Our purpose is to help educators enter the world of coding. Many educators today are hesitant about coding. They are overworked and underpaid, and don't want to worry about learning a whole new subject. That's where Skill Struck comes in. One of Skill Struck's live instructors will introduce coding concepts in a simple and learner focused approach to help participants learn the basics. By the end of the session, participants will have their very own website to show off!

Outline
