We have a guest writer this month. Nafees is a high-school senior who is doing an internship with Start Code. He is assisting in our labs and also wrote about his experience with programming and future plans.
The NPR show Marketplace did a story this year titled “Robot Proof Jobs”. The series looked at automation and jobs previously thought to be “safe” from automation. What can our students do today to start them on a path toward “future proof jobs”?
As we strive to continuously improve the experience for new students to Start Code, one question is always important. What do we want the kids to gain from their experience with a first coding language?
