In 2020, the US Department of Labor anticipates there being over one 1 million unfilled jobs for people who know how to code. Whether through an elective, club, or class, it is important for our city's students to have access to computer science.
RePublic Schools has built a student and teacher-friendly computer science program to address this need! It now reaches over 5,000 students across the South.
The RePublic Schools Computer Science team in partnership with the Phoenix Club of Nashville cordially invite you to the Nashville Codes Community Event! From a student hackathon, to free teacher workshops, to showcases of robotics and drones, join the Nashville community as they explore computer science and learn about opportunities to bring computer science to your schools. The event will be held on May 20th at RePublic High School.
