Contest Calls for Middle School Students to Participate to Win Weekly Prizes

National education technology leader, Learning.com, is partnering with a leading platform for computer science education, Codesters, to launch a national coding contest for middle school students during the month of March using Python, an industrial strength coding language used at companies like Google. Teachers are encouraged to register and have their students participate by using the Learning.com EasyCode Pillars coding curriculum to complete coding projects, such as creating an interactive e-card, designing a phone case and recreating a famous logo, for the chance to win weekly prizes. Each week, three participating classrooms will be randomly drawn for prizes including t-shirts and class pizza parties.
