The CLF is starting a new initiative to train our students to learn to #CODE (and be able to make their own computer apps, games and websites!) With seed funding from Time Warner Cable’s Connect A Million Minds and Edison, Coding is Cool will give our students an extraordinary edge in any future workplace. And they deserve it! Voting begins on September 2nd live on the LA2050 website-and CLF can receive a $100,000 grant from LA2050′s Challenge Grant! Help us spread the word- show that LA is the BEST Place to Learn-and don’t forget to vote for our new Coding is Cool Workshop!
