The Panasonic Foundation and the Hispanic Heritage Foundation are working together to launch four Code as a Second Language academies in Newark, NJ, Reno, NV, Atlanta, GA, and Calexico, CA.
The academies will offer a six- to eight-week coding course for students, who will meet for up to 90 minutes during the school day, or as part of an after-school program.
After students complete the course, they will be referred to the Latinos on Fast Track (LOFT) network for continuing instruction online, as well as connecting students with networking opportunities and science, technology engineering, and math (STEM)-related events.
Said Panasonic Foundation executive director Alejandra Ceja, "Through this partnership, Panasonic is providing more students with hands-on access to innovation and technology that is crucial to the 21st century workforce."
