Summer computer academy expands diversity
from Charlottesville Tomorrow
In a classroom full of laptops and giggling children, three girls hunch seriously over a computer trading insights in rapid Spanish about a game. They represent a much more diverse group of students who are learning to code and play with computers at the CoderDojo summer academy. CoderDojo, a weeklong camp hosted by Albemarle County Public Schools, allows kids to get hands-on experience with technology. The program has expanded from 600 students in 2012 to almost 1,000 this summer.
