We all understand the importance of coding in our digital world. Code.org has created a video to inspire kids to learn to code. It is projected that there will be over one million more coding jobs than students by 2020 and it could become a big problem if it is not resolved.
The video features some of the most successful tech guys including Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, Tony Hsieh, and Miami Heat player Chris Bosh. There are several things you can do to help get more students to learn coding.
