Regardless of where critics might stand on either side of the STEM jobs gap debate, Code.org is making it its mission to bring basic computer programming education to students of all ages.
The non-profit foundation has unveiled a new initiative, dubbed the “Hour of Code,” with the goal of demystifying computer science education for more than 10 million students worldwide by taking them through an hour-long introduction to computer programming.
During a press conference on Monday afternoon, Code.org CEO and co-founder Hadi Partovi described the global campaign as the organization’s first step in establishing computer science as a fundamental field in education.
“I firmly believe that bringing computer science education to every student is the gift that the tech industry owes America,” Partovi remarked.
