Lighthouse Labs Prize

Sorren Jao, 2023 Lighthouse Lab Prize Recipient

Lighthouse Labs is a Vancouver-based coding school, where students learn full-stack web development through immersive bootcamp-style courses. Fast paced and rigorous, classes are focus on minimizing lectures and maximizing the time spent on building things in supervised labs so that students learn more in a shorter amount of time.  

Lighthouse Labs' Web Development bootcamp takes students through the fundamentals of source control using Git, HTML, CSS and stylesheet preprocessors, Ruby on Rails framework, Javascript and the jQuery framework as well as Node.js. As part of the course, students also have the opportunity contribute to open source projects and build their own apps under the supervision of a team of industry experts. The course is ideal for anyone looking to enter the startup community or build their own web applications.

Established in 2014 with a generous gift from Lighthouse Labs, this annual prize provides a space in their specialized Web Development Bootcamp to one current FCAT student or recent alumnus each year. Valued at $14,000, the prize recognizes promising, creative students from any area of FCAT who have a demonstrated interest in web development.
