Bill Clinton, will.i.am, Mark Zuckerberg Support Code.org

[ 0 ] Mar. 5, 2013 | SBO Editor

Code.org is a non-profit foundation dedicated to growing computer programming education.  Their 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.

The non-profit is supported by visionaries, leaders, celebrities including: Al Gore, will.i.am, Stephen Hawking and Arianna Huffington.

“Our vision is that every student in every school has the opportunity to learn how to code.  We 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.” Visit code.org to learn more.
