We Love When People Learn to Code

by Nate Lowry 3/5/2014

We love when people learn to code and we love teaching folks to code. It’s a great investment in ourselves and our community. Omaha Code School has been in the news lately. They have quite the space.

But, like true hipsters, we thought of this first. :)

Here are some fun facts about Lincoln Code School [est. 2013]:

  • Duration: 30 weeks
  • Number of students: 45
  • Number of hours spent by each student: ~100 hours of intense fun (and learning)
  • Number of Don’t Panic Labs members involved: 10
  • Average number of hours/week spent by each DPL member: 10
  • Location: Three LPS elementary schools
  • Age of students: 13 and under
  • Cost: $0

Meet some of our happy “customers” who took part in the Hour of Code back in December:

In all seriousness, teaching kids to code is an easy way to really make an impact in their lives. They’re all incredibly creative and with more problem-solving tools in their pockets, they can do great things. If you're interested in helping, let us know!

Edit

I revised the Number of hours bullet to clarify that this is the number of hours spent by each student.
