“We are excited to be able to expand the reach of our world-class coding curriculum. We know how valuable it is for children to have access to technology creation from an early age. Learning how to code has leveled the playing field for many of our students, especially those from historically underserved communities. Coding offers so many important benefits, particularly confidence and critical thinking, to our students,” says MP Evans, Founder of Code Powers.
Code Super Powers offers all children the valuable and fun experience of technology development. This is particularly important for children of color, as Black and Hispanic workers are significantly underrepresented in the STEM workforce. According to the Pew Research Center, only 9% of STEM workers are Black and only 7% are Hispanic in the U.S.
