Code School students making apps to help the community
SOUTH BEND, Ind. - "Get off the computer and go outside."
It’s a phrase perhaps common in your own household but one South Bend school is changing the way parents feel about technology, one click at a time.
Monday, inside a packed club suite at Four Winds Field, nearly two dozen students presented websites they built in just five weeks.
Alex Sejdinaj is the co-founder of South Bend Code School.
“Exciting just because not a lot of kids in America or in the world doing this stuff," said Sejdinaj.
17-year-old Matthew Peterson says his group chose to work on a website called "Choices," in order to change the way people perceive the homeless community.
“Our mission statement is to make donating more entertaining," said Peterson.
The founders of South Bend Code School say they are in the process of expanding the school to Fort Wayne and Goshen.
