Seeking Program Director

We are looking to hire for this position ASAP and will review applications as they are submitted* 

Tufts University’s Pre-College Programs is currently looking for a Program Director to assist in developing and instructing our 2-week Coding 101 Intensive this upcoming summer, from July 24 to August 5, 2022. 

Coding 101 is a two-week pre-college program intensive which is strategically designed to be suitable for students of all skill levels, whether you’re advanced and looking to take your coding to the next level, or a programming rookie who has never coded before. Students will participate in daily coding lectures with a diverse range of faculty guest lectures on topics like the history of programming and introductions to AI, Robotics, and Cybersecurity. You will gain insights into computing and grow your skills through individual and small, group-based daily coding, discussion, and skills building sessions. Through these daily training sessions, you’ll be able to better understand computing and coding, working within groups, and further expand your abilities. In addition, “Tech Treks” to Boston-area technology-centric companies, such as Hubspot, Google, Ginkgo Bioworks, Fidelity, and more, will allow you to explore the vast array of careers in the ever-expanding fields of software and technology. Learning from experts in the field, students work together to develop not just in-demand programming skills but also the soft skills that you need to successfully create a final coding project. You’ll take the skills that you’ve acquired in the classroom and, collaborating with your team, present your exciting project at program close.
