Donor's Choose is working with the Codecademy to encourage students to take a free, 15 hour on line course in Code.  Why learn to code?  In today's world, learning to code is as basic as learning reading, writing or math.  Still not sure why learning to code is worth your time?  Check out this video, Made with Code and the other videos (all made with Code!) on that page.  Still not convinced?  Read this article, Why Coding is a Big Deal. 

Once you decide you are ready to learn to code and change the world, follow these instructions:

1. Sign up through and complete the course by March 17, 2015.  

2. Make sure you select Kumar as your teacher on signup.

In addition to learning a skill that will set you apart from others, if you complete the course by March 17,  my class and our projects will earn $100 for each student who finishes the course and an additional $1,000 if 10 of you are females, Latino, and/or African American.

Let's do this! Let's learn to Code and Change the World!
