Code.org Wants to Give an Hour of Code to Every Student
Education is a gift that keeps on giving
It’s hard to believe, but 90% of primary and secondary schools in the US still don’t teach computer science classes. While the world is being turned upside down by an accelerating set of technological advances, even today’s elementary students seem destined to languish unless they volunteer a special interest in computers. Code.org is one of the leading nonprofits dedicated to changing this, with one of the most engaging, thoughtful sets of programming tools and games among the multitudes of programming classes available online. And fortunately, they’re trying to bring their thoughtfully designed courses to a wider audience than ever before: this time, to an audience of 100 million students worldwide.
