CodeEd in Business Week and on Mashable

Check out this piece in Business Week on our new program CodeEd, which teaches middle school girls from underserved communities computer science.

We also got a nice write-up on Mashable.

We’re getting a lot of great feedback that there is a real need this type of program. So we’re currently trying to figure out how to reach as many girls as possible in New York and hopefully beyond. By the spring, we’ll be 3 NYC schools and programs. We’ll be teaching more classes at Girls Prep, Young Women’s Leadership School of Brooklyn and also working with a program called TEAK.

We're currently looking for volunteer teachers to help pair-teach a 5 week, 1 hour/week Introduction to HTML class in the Spring of 2011. If you know anyone who might be interested, I'd love to talk with them.
