Unlock the Code to Student Success

UNLACK THE CODE TO STUDENT SUCCESS 1.4 MILLION JOBS will be created in the computer science field by 2020' BUT... There will only be 400,000 computer science graduates. Obviously that's a massive job/student gap' 40% 2% COMPUTER ALL OTHER JOBS SCIENCE STUDENTS 98% 60% ALL OTHER MATH & COMPUTING JOBS SCIENCE STUDENTS That gap will create an untapped market of 500 BILLION DOLLARS! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? Only 10% of K-12 schools teach computer science Only 19 states count computer science as a graduation credit for either math or science." 17 Since 2005, introductory secondary“ school computer science courses have decreased in number by 17% 90% of schools just don't even teach it. So if you're a parent and your school doesn't offer this class, your kids aren't going to have the preparation they need for the 21st century. Just like we teach how electricity works and biology they should also know how the Internet works and how apps work. As soon as you can start learning coding you should, because the earlier you start learning something, the better you'll be at it later in life.L Grechen Huebner Co-founder at Kodable - Hadi Partovi Co-founder at Code.org SO WHERE DO YOU START?
