Everyone Can Code

"Coding is essential to help students thrive in a future driven by technology. When you teach coding, you also teach skills like critical thinking and problem solving. Everyone Can Code resources can help you give all students the opportunity to learn to code in school, after school, and to prepare for college and career."
