Broward County Public Schools, Innovation Florida, Wyncode Academy and The South Florida Accelerator are launching a pilot computer coding program this summer for high school students. Twenty BCPS students are participating in the eight-week course.
“This program affords our students an incredible opportunity to expand their skills in computer coding as they explore the many potential career pathways available in this growing industry,” said Dan Gohl, BCPS chief academic officer.
The goal of the course is to inspire more students to pursue careers in computer coding and technology-related industries. “Innovation and technology go hand in hand – the importance of immersing students into coding culture is paramount and cannot be overestimated,” said Maria Sachs, executive director of Innovation Florida.
