500 Baltimore city school students will take one-hour coding classes this week

As part of the international Computer Science Education Week, local nonprofit Code in the Schools is traveling to several city schools to tutor students through one hour of computer programming.

As part of the international Computer Science Education Week, local nonprofit Code in the Schools is traveling to several city schools to tutor students through one hour of computer programming.

Code in the Schools cofounder Gretchen LeGrand said the nonprofit plans to host one-hour coding classes with more than 500 Baltimore city school students this week. (Around the world, almost five million students are also participating.)

As Technical.ly Baltimore has reported, Code in the Schools teaches elementary, middle and high school students computer programming skills by coaching them through the creation of their own video games.

Code in the Schools’ schedule for the week (Monday’s coding classes were canceled due to schools closing because of the snow.):

  • Tuesday: Roland Park Elementary/Middle, Frederick Douglas High School, St. Francis Neighborhood Center
  • Wednesday: Digital Harbor High School
  • Thursday: Baltimore Design School
  • Friday: Possible make-up day for Federal Hill Preparatory, which was closed on Monday due to the snow
  • Monday (12/16): Liberty Elementary School

Code in the Schools is also in the middle of a crowdfunding campaign: it’s raising $6,000 to put together a laptop cart it can take to each of the schools where it teaches coding lessons.
