Video from code.org
Over the past 20 years, computer science has reshaped business, entertainment and education, with the demand for computer programmers continuing to rise.
Recent campaigns, including this video from Code.org, help move us away from the misconception that coding is only for select “geniuses.” Increasingly, these new initiatives focus on making programming more accessible to elementary and high schools.
Such efforts remind us of the work of Games+Learning+Society, a research group at WID, which regularly promotes computer programming skills for local students interested in creating video games.
