Georgia Day of Code / Dec.8th
Coding skills are essential to our future workforce, and every student – regardless of race, gender, age, or socioeconomic status, should have the opportunity to learn computer science.
Georgia Day of Code was created several years ago to increase the number of Georgia students, educators, and workers who interact with coding: a vital 21st-century workforce skill. Georgia Day of Code occurs every year in the first week of December during national Computer Science Week. This year we’re once again excited to offer options for varying grade levels in addition to promoting code.org’s “Hour of Code.”
Launched in 2013, Code.org® is a non-profit dedicated to expanding access to computer science, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of color. Our vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science. We believe computer science should be part of core curriculum, alongside other courses such as biology, chemistry or algebra.
