The Coding School adapts computer science learning during COVID crisis; summer programs offered for students in grades K-12

The Coding School (TCS) is making computer science education accessible to K-12 students around the world via a strictly online platform.

Students are taught by professional software engineers at top tech companies, professional software engineers and university students from across the U.S. They can choose from 18 in-depth curriculums in specialized tech areas created and advised by industry professionals in areas such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, quantum computing and computational genomics.

Over the last few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Coding School has taught more than 1,500 students free coding lessons from more than 40 countries.

The summer programs include 1:1 and 2:1 coding lessons taught by top engineers at universities and companies; and virtual summer camps offered in specialized tech areas like Music+Tech with Duff McKagan, bass guitarist for Guns N’ Roses; creative tech; and quantum computing, which was developed and taught by MIT physicists.
