Through our special Kids Code Mississippi Project, we are helping support/promote the CS4MS pilot program to teach coding and digital literacy in Mississippi public schools.
An application for the pilot program has been posted on the CS4MS website (link below). The application period is currently open, and closes at the end of February, 2016. We encourage all the applicable champions of education in Mississippi to take a look and become a part of the program.
This kind of effort is another piece of the solution that will steepen Mississippi’s growth curve and develop a sustainable, knowledge-based workforce. All of this necessary for the recruitment of knowledge-based companies, the growth and retention of corporate headquarters, and the the shifting our workforce to one of highly compensated workers. We are on the cusp of being a force to be reckoned with in the 21st century economy. Let’s take the leap, and leapfrog to the top!
