“President Obama recently announced Computer Science for All, a new initiative to bring computer science education to classrooms across the U.S. Vidcode is overjoyed that the White House has put their support behind computer science for every student!
We’re thrilled to be part of this movement to empower all students to use and connect computer science with their friends and hobbies. Watch President Obama’s announcement here:
In our technology-driven economy, an understanding of programming is critical to students’ success in whatever they decide to do. Read this story about a Biology teacher using cross-curricular coding integration to engage students and empower them to share their work.
