Do you know what coding is? Coding is telling a computer what you want it to do by using language the computer understands. Anyone can learn! With the help of 4th-grader Dylan Carter, a coding club has been formed at Ida Burns Elementary School. This club provides a time set aside for 4th grade students to have the opportunity to learn to code. The free, beginner friendly websites code.org and codecademy.com are being used to guide students in learning at their own pace and to make personal goals in learning to code. It is projected that by the year 2020, there will be more than 1.4 million computer programming positions available and only 400,000 qualified coders to fill those jobs. Hopefully, this club will “hook” several students and guide them in choosing coding as their career.
