Georgia Day of Code- December 8, 2017
Coding skills are essential to our future workforce, and every student – regardless of race, gender, age, or socioeconomic status – should have the opportunity to learn computer science.
The Technology Association of Georgia and TAG Education Collaborative, in partnership with Code.org, developed Georgia Day of Code to increase the number of Georgia students, educators, and workers who are exposed to coding: a vital 21st-century workforce skill. Georgia Day of Code occurs every year during Computer Science Week in conjunction with Code.org’s Hour of Code initiative.
Code.org provides participants with a wide array of resources for Georgia Day of Code, including coding tutorials for all ages, promotional materials and posters, and videos for students and colleagues to learn more about computer science.
Have no experience coding? No problem! Code.org offers introductions to computer science and hour-long tutorials featuring Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Angry Birds, and Zombies – for your computer, tablet, or smartphone!
The first official Day of Code was December 10, 2014. Here’s what we’ve accomplished since:
