Local kids head to code camp

Across the nation, computer programming jobs are growing at well over twice the rate of other sectors, yet most public schools don’t teach coding, says Charleston Digital Corridor executive director Ernest Andrade. Enter CDC’s CODEcamp for Kids. It started with a pilot summer program, and on November 7, grows into a four-week course for ages 10 to 14 that’s likely to expand in the spring.

“We’re teaching the same skills we’d teach an adult,” says Andrade. The nonprofit ensures that at least a quarter of students attend via community-supported scholarships, spreading skills like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and robotics to an under-represented population.
