Why Code Club?
Why should we care about coding? Why should we teach kids how to code in our public and school libraries? Great question! Because…
“Coding is the closest thing we have to a superpower.”
Drew Houston (Dropbox Founder, Coder, Billionaire)
We think those superpowers look something like…
There are going to be a million unfilled computer programming jobs by the year 2020 (source: code.org). That means we’re not producing enough skilled people to get these jobs. It also means that if kids can get these skills by coming to the library once or twice a week, it’s going virtually guarantee their gainful employment for the rest of their lives. That’s some serious impact!
Coding is about more than just jobs. It’s about developing significant life skills like problem solving, critical thinking, and a growth mindset. The code clubbers of today are the leaders and world-changers of tomorrow.
“Coding is more and more not just a job but a required basic skill. New job definitions are being created every year that combines programming with other skill sets.”
Ryan Bubinksi, Co-founder of Codecademy
