What most schools don’t teach

 

Every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn to code

Code.org is anon-profit foundation dedicated to growing computer programming education.  Goals include:

  • Spreading the word that there is a worldwide shortage of computer programmers, and that it’s much easier to learn to program than you think.
  • Building an authoritative database of all programming schools, whether they are online courses, brick+mortar schools or summer camps.

Code.org vision is that every student in every school has the opportunity to learn how to code.  They believe computer science and computer programming should be part of the core curriculum in education, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra.
