Onramp Program Spring Showcase
The Onramp Program is a joint effort between three Idaho partners: Boise State University, CWI, and IDLA. Along with the support of the Apple Community Education Initiatives team, we deliver community, creativity, and coding by engaging learners in community challenges. Onramp provides educators and learners with coding experiences regardless of their geography, circumstances, or any limitation. When we began in 2019, Boise State helped K-12 educators learn to deliver the Everyone Can Code and Everyone Can Create curriculum through Professional Development credit, while CWI and IDLA offered dual-credit Swift coding courses for high school students. Since 2019, the program and our network of collaborators have expanded beyond the K-12 Treasure Valley school districts and now includes four public libraries, high school students across the state, school administrators, college students, English language learners, and collaborations with other Apple CEI communities. In 2022, Onramp launched a mobile lab to deliver coding experiences for learners and expand our work with Boise State’s Community Impact Programs, NeighborWorks, and other community organizations.
