Apple Offers Free Coding Classes At Stores To Get Kids Into Coding


Apple wants to get kids into coding and is offering free coding classes at its stores worldwide. According to Digital Trends, the company offers “Hour of Code” sessions to help kids learn and improve coding skills. Younger children aged between 6 and 12 will learn about coding through robots. Meanwhile, those 12 and above will be using Swift, Apple’s programming language used by professional developers. Swift can be learned through the iPad and even if kids can’t make it to the store they can learn from home.

  • Tim Cook Makes Appearance at Coding Party in New York

    Apple's new Upper East Side store on Madison Avenue in New York City has been many things since it was a bank. Six months ago, the classically styled building, with its vaulted ceiling and pale marble columns, became an Apple Store and today its second floor, which is below ground and still houses the bank's vault, is a makeshift school and temporary way station for Apple CEO Tim Cook. Cook's arrival on Wednesday was perfectly timed to coincide with a Code session with 18 students from the city's PS 57 James Weldon Johnson Leadership Academy, a Charter School in East Harlem. During the session, Cook said, "I think creativity is so important. Training the mind how to think is so important. The classroom of the future is problem-solving and creating and learning how to express yourself."

  • Pennsylvania To Get Its First Private School for Gifted Students

    There are private schools for autism, attention deficit, dyslexia and other learning differences, but none in all of Pennsylvania for gifted students. But, that's about to change. On Friday, the state Department of Education awarded a license to the Grayson School, which plans to open in the fall at a Greek Orthodox school in Broomall. The school will begin by serving students from kindergarten through sixth grade. The Grayson School, which will charge $21,800 tuition its first year, will offer individualized, accelerated instruction. It hopes to add grades in later years and ultimately serve students from K-through-12. The school aims to be funded primarily through tuition, grants, and donations and will not rely on tax dollars. The school plans to have a student-teacher ratio of 8 to 1 in core academic subjects, with smaller groups for specialized instruction. The curriculum, which is based on research in gifted education, will focus on projects. The languages offered will include Spanish, Mandarin, and computer coding.
