According to Code.org statistics, computer science is the highest-paid college degree, and jobs in computer programming are growing at two times the national average–but despite that, fewer than 2.4 percent of college students graduate with a degree in computer science.
Computer science education and coding advocates point to a number of websites, resources, mobile apps, and more to help teachers and students learn more about coding:
- After-School Programming is an offshoot of Codecademy.
- CodeHS offers instructional materials and tutors to help people learn about computer science.
- Google offers computer science and coding competitions and summer programs.
- Scratch, developed at MIT, is a free program designed to help children learn coding by programming their own stories, games, and animations.
- Hopscotch is an iPad app “inspired by” Scratch.
