Code.org has reached a major milestone: The organization happily reports that a million girls and a million African-American and Hispanic students are enrolled in their learning platform Code Studio.
The Code Studio students are not just taking a one-hour class, according to Code.org. These students are enrolled in the full introductory computer science course, and the average student’s age is 12.
Additionally, Code Studio offers fun courses, games and the famous “Hour of Code,” for all ages and experience levels. Even President Obama took the coding challenge in early December. To date, they report that 4 billion lines of code have been written by students in Code Studio. Here’s a fun look back at what else they’ve accomplished.
