This is pretty cool and free! Coding might seem nerdy/geeky, but I think everyone should at least understand a little of what goes into it. Heck, they even are having this at some of my grandkids elementary school next week (warms my heart! lol)!
And remember this quote from Steve Jobs:
“I think everyone in this country should learn to program a computer… because it teaches you how to think.”
Details from Lifehacker:
In advance of Computer Science Education Week, which kicks off on Monday, Code.org has brought together some of the biggest names in the tech industry to teach everyone to code. All it takes is an hour to start learning.
Besides Gates and Zuckerberg, most of the major tech companies (e.g., Amazon, Microsoft, LinkedIn, Dropbox, Apple, Yahoo) are backing this endeavor—and trying to correct the fact that 9 out of 10 US schools don’t even teach programming.
